Guardian Angel Jam is an annual event that hosts some of the best up & coming bands in the region. It's a festival about coming together with friends and fellow musicians to help support a common cause, to share their love and support for a friend and passionate music fan, Glen Allister.
Glen Allistar was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma at the age of 10. As he was being treated at the Children's Hospital of the Kings Daughters in Norfolk, VA he went into remission, but would lose his right leg below the knee. At the age of 16 they discovered another tumor and he relapsed in 2007, undergoing 18 months of rigorous Chemo, 6 weeks (full lung) radiation for 3 bone tumors. Today Glen's treatments are all done and he still has 2 bone tumors.
If you live in the area like I do you can't help but feel a little pride for all the great bands that were eager to come together for this special event. For Glen and everyone involved, it's just a wonderful thing to be a part of. Much respect.
