The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults is honored to once again partner with Woodstoc Roc”, says Brock Yetso, UCF’s President and CEO. “UCF raises awareness by creating opportunities and platforms for people and communities to get active in the fight against cancer and this continues to be a perfect opportunity for Howard County and surrounding communities to come together in support of two great causes.”
Brian Kahat was 6 years old in 1969 when the Woodstock Music Festival brought together half a million people to celebrate peace, love, and rock ’n’ roll. Today, Kahat, as a stage 3 cancer survivor, is celebrating not only peace and love, but life and hope, for those affected by cancer. Soon after his recovery, Kahat founded Woodstoc Roc, a local benefit to “Roc out Cancer.” Having realized his own childhood dream of playing in a band, Brian knew that rock ’n ’roll would be his way to help the cause.
Brian credits the recovery of his health to the support of his family and friends, but his conception of Woodstoc Roc is what helped Brian recover his purpose in life. Through his foundation, Brian hopes to bring families and friends together to relax, celebrate, and enjoy great music, all in the spirit of helping in the fight against cancer.
