Ring The Bell is a brand new song written for and dedicated to cancer survivors and their families. It is meant to give hope and strength to everyone touched by cancer.
The inspirational song has been performed at charity events. Rochelle’s Army was so inspired by the positive response they have decided to make the song available for download to everyone and anyone touched by cancer. Micheline, Rochelle’s sister says, “Many people have been touched by this song and it has become a theme song for many patients that are living with cancer. It is meant to give them hope and strength especially when they get to the end of treatment and are able to "Ring The Bell".
The song was written by Catherine Gell and performed with friends (Sandra, Alah, and Jessiah) to honour, dedicate and pay tribute to local Calgarian Rochelle Gartner who was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (GBM), an aggressive and incurable type of brain cancer.
All donations received through this page will go directly towards advancing glioblastoma research. Your support, of any amount, will help change the course of how people diagnosed with brain cancer will be treated in Canada.
Rochelle is the artistic director of Dance With France Studio (16yrs) and founder/director of Artists Elite Int’l in Calgary, Alberta. She has been a very active member of the dance community in Canada throughout her life.
Since her 2019 diagnosis, she has undergone brain surgery and many rounds of combined radiation and chemotherapy treatments. At this time Rochelle has completed 16 rounds of chemotherapy and has MRI’s every 2 months.
Throughout her journey Rochelle’s spirit and resolve have remained strong as she continues to fight her cancer daily, with a grace and dignity. Truly inspiring, she is setting such a wonderful example to the whole community on how to live life with cancer and how to never give up.
Rochelle’s commitment to raising funds and awareness of brain cancer, specifically Glioblastoma, has been a testament to how truly special she is as a person. Having been the Artistic Director of Dance With France Studio for 16 years and the Founder/Director of Artists Elite Int’l in Calgary, she has brought together with her love of dance and deep connections in that community with giving back. A variety of successful fundraisers have already been held and now Rochelle’s Army is focusing its efforts on directly supporting research and advancing treatment options for Glioblastoma.
