A Night of Hope | Scott MacIntyre

A Night of Hope benefitting the Children’s Tumor Foundation

SCOTT MACINTYRE has come a long way. From his early days as a classical concert pianist to capturing the hearts of millions of American Idol viewers with his engaging presence and vocal prowess, he has never let challenges keep him from achieving his dreams. Having performed with such notable acts as The Band Perry, Alice Cooper, and the Jonas Brothers, he has traveled the globe inspiring audiences with his music and story.

“I Am Hope: Scott MacIntyre’s Inspirational Transplant Journey” is a documentary that was released in December 2017. In 2015 Scott underwent his second successful kidney transplant and received a kidney from an anonymous donor. This documentary is the untold story of Scott’s journey from hardship to hope and a testament to the incredible power of giving. Scott hopes that it inspires people to hold on in the hardest of times and to live every day as if it is their last.

Not uncommon, but not well-known, neurofibromatosis (NF) is a progressive genetic disorder that occurs in 1 in 3,000 births – it is more prevalent than cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and Huntington’s disease combined. NF causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body, and can lead to deafness, blindness, disfigurement, bone abnormalities, learning disabilities, disabling pain, and cancer. NF has been classified into three distinct types: NF1, NF2 and schwannomatosis. NF occurs in all populations equally, and there is not yet a cure.

The Children’s Tumor Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of the more than 2.5 million people worldwide who live with NF. The Foundation is the largest non-government funding source for NF research, and this research is shedding new light on cancer, brain tumors, learning disabilities, and bone abnormalities, which will ultimately benefit the broader community.
