The Spondylitis Association Of America (SAA) is a non-profit organization that was the first and remains the largest resource for people affected by spondylitis. Through their efforts, they help advance education, research and treatment for ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and related diseases. More than 85,000 people per month visit SAA's interactive website to access over 1,700 pages of up-to-date content for information and support. For 30 years’ SAA has dedicated all of its resources to help improve the lives of people coping with spondylitis.
"This is a very personal benefit for me as my wife, Naomi, suffers from ankylosing spondylitis (AS).", says Lazlo, the founder of BlowUpRadio.com and the organizer of Banding Together, "I have seen the debilitating effects of this disease and the chronic pain and discomfort it causes. This benefit is the least I can do to help my wife, and over a million others who suffer from AS."
“I am very excited that this year in association with ThePenguinRocks.com, and 40FootHoleStudio.com, we can turn this into a real virtual festival with three stages of continual live performances all weekend.”
