Izzy Wallace hosted a second charity event to raise awareness for Myeloma, a blood cancer found in bone marrow on Sunday, July 28th, 2019 from 2:00-6:00pm. Motivated by a family friend’s story and deeply committed to public awareness, Izzy, while living revealed the “Music for Myeloma” documentary film, debut “Grace’s Song,” and invited local musical talents to join in an evening of fun, food and music. Funds raised benefited the Karmanos Cancer Institute.
This charity event was born from the heart of a young woman out of love for a local family. When Izzy’s friend was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, she was devastated. Izzy had formed special bonds with the family’s children, as well as the parents, and she knew the significant impact the diagnosis would have on everyone involved. Izzy is a musician, and decided she needed to do something to help. She wrote a song titled “Grace’s Song,” for the young daughter, Grace. Izzy then reached out to oncologists, Drs. Carol Rapson and Anthony Brandau, as well as Dr. Deol from the Karmanos Cancer Institute of Detroit to assist her in creating her “Music for Myeloma” documentary film. The money from downloads of the song go to the Karmanos Cancer Institute.
