Music To Fight Children's Neurological Diseases

Jourdan Urbach was honored for his achievement on Tuesday with one of the nation's highest public service awards — the Jefferson Awards.

The 20-year-old resident of the Long Island community of Roslyn founded Concerts for a Cure when he was only 7 years old. Since then, he has raised $5.1 million to fight children's neurological diseases and fund research. Through benefit concerts, he has funded 12 life-saving neurosurgeries, 1,000 cochlear implants, pediatric clinics in Africa and El Salvador and a bedside music program at the University of Michigan's Mott Children's Hospital.
