Cappello Music Vo-sponsores Breast Cancer MusicFest
On August 25, Cappello Music Co., Inc., distributor of Traps Drums and the Dixson Bass Drum Lift, co-sponsored with The Leever Cancer Center the 4th annual Are You Dense MusicFest at Quassy Amusement Park in Middlebury, Connecticut. This event is held to raise awareness and finances for the non-profit 501(c)(3) charity Are You Dense breast cancer organization.
Are You Dense is about informing women of the high cancer risk for those with dense breast tissue. Dense breast tissue hides tumors from being seen on a mammogram, thus cancer is found at a later stage. Are You Dense was instrumental in passing breast density inform legislation in Connecticut, New York, Texas, and Virginia and fifteen states now have pending legislation along with a National bill HR 3102 to inform women with dense breast tissue of their higher cancer risk.
This year the MusicFest featured smooth jazz recording artists Vincent Ingala, Leila with special guest Funkeeboy. For more information on dense breast tissue and its risk factors, visit www.AreYouDense.org. & www.AreYouDenseAdvocacy.org
