The 5th Annual Amber Fernandez Benefit Concert featuring Tesoro





















Amber was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in 2011 at the young age of 7. After a determined fight and a bone marrow transplant from her little superhero brother, Benjamin, Amber is nearly 4 years cancer free! Please mark your calendars for our Spring concert as we hope you can join us to continue to celebrate her incredible feat, beating cancer and living a life leukemia free. Amber and her family will honor others in the community whose lives have also been touched by a blood cancer, both survivors and those who have lost their hard fought battle. All proceeds from the evening will benefit pediatric cancer research within the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Their mission is to cure blood cancers and improve the lives of patients and their families.

The 5th Annual Amber Fernandez Benefit Concert will be better than ever! Please join us to celebrate Amber's incredible feat, beating cancer and now living a leukemia free life. This year, Amber will honor others in the community whose lives have also been touched by a blood cancer, both survivors and those who have lost their hard fought battle. 

This year, Amber will honor:  Kelsey Taylor Luria Mike Hunter Steve DeCook   

Enjoy the music from Tucson’s very own Tesoro and a delicious dining experience on the Cascade Terrace at Loew's Ventana Canyon Resort. There will be both silent and live auctions, as well as a raffle event.  

For those unable to attend the event, we would greatly appreciate a donation to the cause.

All proceeds will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Arizona (and are tax deductible)!    

"They ride tricycles in the hallway, not in the park.  They know the names of their chemo's instead of their classmates.  Their central lines have names.  Nurses and Doctors are their new family.  They think hair is overrated.  Their laughter can make a heart melt!  Their strength will make a grown person cry!  If you've ever seen a kid fight cancer, it will change your life forever!!" 

(One of Amber's first doctors in Virginia wrote the above touching note)
