Around 1600 people are diagnosed with brain cancer in Australia annually and approximately 1200 die from the disease every year. Brain cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease and more people under 40 than any other cancer. Cure Brain Cancer Foundation is dedicated to accelerating the development of new treatments to increase five-year to survival from the current 20% to 50% by 2023.
In 2016, Glenda Borg, mother of the Borg brothers in Shortfall passed away from brain cancer. She started to show symptoms in August, was diagnosed in September and passed away in October. No one should endure the pain that Glenda, her family and friends witnessed.
SHORTFALL, joined by some of Melbourne's finest bands - SCHIKAIN, ARAKEYE and HEADTORCH supported by the Worker's Club Fitzroy and Greenlight Promotions are showcasing this special LIVE MUSIC CHARITY EVENT. Also being launched on the night is a special charity CD which can be purchased - featuring some of the states best musicians (more info about the CD including a full track listing will be released closer to the date).
The first ever Brain Wave Live music event is an event held in memory of Glenda Borg, with the aim to raise as much money for the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation as possible. Every cent raised goes directly to this amazing foundation and with your help we can make progress in defeating this terrible disease.
