Meet Our Founder
Diagnosed with hip cancer at age ten, now-fourteen- year-old Malcolm Malcolm Sutherland-Foggio, of New Jersey, whose grandparents live on Bainbridge Island, has been battling cancer in the research lab as well as his own body for over three years. He was an active healthy child until his hip began hurting in the fall of 2008. He has battled Ewing’s Sarcoma and ensuing complications while tackling the wider role of raising national awareness and funding the critically needed translational research to help find the cures.
Malcolm began his journey with concern for those around him. He created and maintained a web site to keep his contacts informed so they would not be afraid for him. While enduring chemotherapy and surgeries with his signature humor and courage, Malcolm felt compelled to share the story of pediatric cancer whenever he could find the opportunity. Speaking out and raising funds through the sale of his wristbands was not enough, and seeing little or no awareness for children’s cancer and discovering that research dollars are inadequate to research the cures, he felt compelled to “make some noise” about it and to incorporate a foundation for pediatric cancer research funding.
Incorporated in September 2009, the Make Some Noise: Cure Kids Cancer Foundation has welcomed new friends and other families touched by cancer who support the mission. Our combined efforts have raised over $1 million dollars to date, but we are just getting started. There are billions of dollars yet to be raised, and young lives in the balance. Malcolm has toured the country meeting with researchers and touring lab facilities, to better understand the crisis. He has learned that we need to step up the pace if we are to help make a difference!

Make Some Noise: Cure Kids’ Cancer – Northwest
We are the northwest chapter of the national non-profit Make Some Noise: Cure Kids Cancer Foundation, Inc. OUR MISSION is to secure private funding for pediatric cancer research and promote greater public awareness of kid’s cancer within the northwest.
100% of the net proceeds of our efforts are directed to childhood cancer research. The Seattle Children’s Hospital is the premier children’s healthcare resource serving patients in Washington, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho. We help to fund the hope of research and recently FDA approved immunotherapy pre-clinical trials at Seattle Children’s Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research.
Private funding is critical and urgently needed:
o Less than 3% of federal cancer research funding goes to kid’s cancers.
o Two classrooms of children are diagnosed with cancer every day.
o Some treatment protocols have not changed in 15-20 years.
o Chemotherapy and radiation cause chronic long term health problems for growing bodies.
o Researchers can do much better, but need your help.
PLEASE HELP US TO FUND THE HOPE !

** Graciously lending her name to this Cause and performing that evening **
Eilen Jewell isn’t opening for Lucinda Williams on her worldwide tour for nothing. Her new album Queen Of The Minor Key exquisitly showcases her poignant songwriting, powerful musical delivery, and stunning voice. While such grit and grace are aptly paired with Williams, Eilen Jewell is nobody’s understudy. She has been compared to everyone from Emmylou Harris to Peggy Lee, yet remains distinct and confident in her own progression.
And why not? Eilen Jewel has taken the world by storm, while working with some of the greatest legends in the business along the way (her current tour shares stages with Buddy Guy, John Fogerty, Maceo Parker, Crosby, Stills & Nash, among others).
[Jewell] embellishes the classic Nashville vocal approach with appealing measures of blues, pop, and jazz. – New Yorker
Dark and haunting…but alluring just the same…Give me more of that voice.” – USA Today
Sometimes as darkly damaged as Lucinda Williams, at others as defiant and teasing as prime Peggy Lee and always authentically Americana in the Gillian Welch tradition….She’s mighty good. – Los Angeles Daily News
Jewell’s music has the languorous quietude of (Gillian) Welch or Norah Jones, but there is something more direct, almost in your face, about her stark, neo traditional melodies, subdued vocals, and confident, slow-swaying groove. It’s as if she’s daring us to say we miss the bells and whistles of pop…Jewell’s songs are achingly good, twanged-out elegies to a world of barbed wire, rusty trucks, and a frontier that no longer exists. – The Boston Globe
Born in Idaho in 1979, Jewell began her musical adventure busking on the streets of Santa Fe, then moved to Venice Beach, California, where she again set out her guitar case. Since her official 2006 debut, Boundary County, Jewell has surveyed a wide range of traditional musical styles, from the folk and jug band leanings of her early recordings, through an album-length homage to Loretta Lynn and the country gospel of her work with The Sacred Shakers, right up to 2009’s Sea of Tears, which bristled with the electricity of ’60s UK garage rock and Chicago blues. Queen of the Minor Key draws on everything from classic country to early R&B, with an emphasis on sounds from the seamier side of the tracks.
$50 for each ticket purchased goes directly to Seattle Children’s Hospital to assist with the development of a clinical trial using modified T cells for children with relapsed neuroblastoma, an aggressive children’s cancer.
This very special benefit includes dinner, drinks, and concert.
At the door night of the show: $150.
