Help us fund the Matt Fishman Scholarship.

Matt ellesse

In Sep. 2022, at the age of 23, my lovely son Matt was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer. Only 5% of GBM patients survive 5+ years. Despite incredible odds, Matt's spirit remains unbroken. Matt and his fiancée Ellesse believe in the healing power of music, and have established the Matt Fishman Scholarship, a beacon of hope for students pursuing a career in music, whose lives have been impacted by cancer. Please join us in celebrating Matt's spirit and spreading hope through the universal language of music. Together, we can make a profound impact and inspire other cancer survivors to believe in the power of music to heal and uplift.
