About Sing for Siteman

Sing for Siteman was launched in 2010 by a small group of St. Louisans to engaged young artists in the fight against cancer. The event was inspired by Carol Wong, an internationally renowned pianist, who lost her father to cancer. Sing for Siteman features Carol Wong accompanying outstanding artists from across North America, performing a wide range of musical selections to honor cancer patients and benefit research at the Siteman Cancer Center.

As a person whose parents were both afflicted with cancer, I have witnessed the impact of how insufficient funding for cancer research, support groups, and health care can prevent many from receiving the best care and treatment. We all know someone who has cancer, and we all wish for miracles.
