Ray of Light was founded by Raymond Cruz, who has been fighting Stage 4 Ewing’s Like Sarcoma since January of 2017. Through this battle, he was given the opportunity to share his message of hope with people through his music, from the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital to the stage of the Ryman Auditorium. Ray’s dream and mission is to make a difference by helping others and to help raise funds that will provide Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital with research and programs that will provide more help to the children and their families.
