Voices Against Brain Cancer Offers Support to Songwriter Battling Brain Cancer
Date:4/11/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 11, 2013

On April 11, 2013, Voices Against Brain Cancer (VABC) offers encouragement to Rob Morsberger following the publication of a USA Today article by Elysa Gardner documenting the singer-songwriter's battle with brain cancer.

According the USA Today article, Morsberger learned he had terminal brain cancer back in September of 2011, but claimed he would continue to make music. Since then, Morsberger has put out three studio albums, and is now working on a documentary.

The article states that, “he is currently working on a documentary about his life, even as his tumor grows and his symptoms become more aggressive. He has lost vision in one eye, and also suffers from headaches and memory loss.” The article mentions that even though he has been diagnosed with brain cancer, Morsberger hasn’t slowed down and continues to make music even while suffering from symptoms.

Michael Klipper, Chairman of VABC, is moved by Morsberger’s decision to document his battle with brain cancer. “Getting a major diagnosis like Morsberger's can be disastrous. To be able to move on and take charge of your life the way he has is something truly inspirational. Morsberger sets a wonderful example for us all, and proves that even when experiencing terrible hardship, you can still live your life to the max. I hope people will watch his documentary and become inspired by such a brave person.”

VABC has a wide variety of initiatives in place for brain cancer research, awareness and support. The organization’s research grants fund cutting-edge research programs that will have a monumental impact on the diagnosis and treatment of brain cancer. VABC currently funds research at several esteemed institutions such as Brookhaven National Laboratory, Cleveland Clinic, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, Harvard, John Hopkins, Memorial Sloan-Kettering and Yale, to name a few.

VABC's mission is to find a cure for brain cancer by advancing scientific research, increasing awareness within the medical community and supporting patients, their families and caregivers afflicted with this devastating disease.
