CTFAC founder, Ryan Benton currently battling Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD); is the first person with his disease to be treated in the United States with this ground-breaking medical treatment. Ryan was diagnosed with DMD at the age of three and given a life expectancy of late teens to early twenties. He began receiving adult stem cell therapy at the age of 22. Ryan, along with his siblings Lauren and Blake Benton, created Coming Together for a Cure in 2009. Proceeds from CTFAC and Concert in the Country help fund treatments for Ryan as well as raise awareness and support for others with DMD and others with similar diseases that are in need of adult stem cell therapy.
The 7th annual benefit concert is poised to be the most successful yet as they build off of their previous year’s success where they raised nearly $35,000 and had nearly 1,000 people in attendance. The event is fun for the whole family and includes many raffle items up for grabs. DJ’s from Wichita’s HANK-FM radio station will be the event’s emcees.
