The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund was formed in memory of the legendary rock singer Ronnie James Dio, who lost his life to gastric cancer in 2010. A privately funded 501(c)(3) charity organization dedicated to cancer prevention, research and education, the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund has already raised over $2 million in its history. Monies raised have been committed to the cancer research work of the T.J. Martell Foundation for Cancer, AIDS and Leukemia Research, the gastric cancer research unit of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where Ronnie was treated for gastric cancer during the last six months of his life, and other cancer research projects. The Dio Cancer Fund has committed funds to support the research of Dr. David Wong and his team at the UCLA School of Dentistry in developing a simple, non-invasive saliva test for the early detection of cancer, which is in keeping with the Fund's mission of cancer prevention, research and education.
100% of the net proceeds from the "Rock For Ronnie" will go to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund, which is now in its 13th year of raising awareness and much-needed funding for cancer prevention, education and research for a cure. The organization's next fund-raising event will be its annual "Bowl For Ronnie" celebrity bowling party, which is scheduled for November 16 at PINZ Bowling Center in Los Angeles.
