Rock City is proud to partner with EPFAC Neuroblastoma Foundation during Fairytale Nights. Wendy and Jonathan Ransom began the foundation in 2006 to honor the memory of their two-year-old daughter, Emily. She passed away after a heroic four-month battle with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a deadly pediatric cancer. The goal of EPFAC is to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for Neuroblastoma, while helping with the immediate needs of children and their families fighting this disease.
