Concert Connects Blood Cancer Patients with Community Resources and Support

Through the national movement, Band Against Cancer: The Sarah Cannon Tour, St. David’s HealthCare will host Martina McBride & Friends in concert at Bass Concert Hall on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016. As the leading voice for the movement, Martina McBride will headline the concert, with additional performances by Thompson Square, Cassadee Pope and Hudson Moore.

Band Against Cancer connects people facing cancer with community-based resources and support close to home. The performance at Bass Concert Hall on The University of Texas at Austin’s campus will feature onsite activations to join the cause and support those fighting cancer, as well as opportunities for cancer patients to share their stories and connect with others fighting the same journey.

Patients facing blood cancer in Central Texas can access comprehensive blood cancer services through the Sarah Cannon Blood Cancer Center at St. David’s South Austin Medical Center, which offers cutting-edge treatments, including autologous and allogeneic transplants, and related and unrelated donor transplants.

The Sarah Cannon Blood Cancer Center at St. David’s South Austin Medical Center is part of Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at St. David’s HealthCare—a partnership between St. David’s HealthCare and Sarah Cannon designed to provide patients with a more coordinated and comprehensive approach to cancer services in Central Texas.
