Shout Out To N.E.D.

Here is a portion of the email I received that describes what N.E.D. is all about:

I thought you’d be interested to know about a new rock band with a purpose: N.E.D. The group is comprised of six musically talented gynecologic cancer surgeons hailing from all four corners of the U.S. (N.E.D. is an acronym for "No Evidence of Disease"- a phrase that every gynecologic oncologist hopes to tell a patient after undergoing cancer treatment.) The band's mission is to enhance knowledge about women's reproductive cancers, bring hope through rhythm for women undergoing treatment, and raise awareness & money for the fight against the disease.

One of the ways they will be doing this is through their six-song EP with styles ranging from indie rock, to arena rock, to jam/band to folk-rock. Net proceeds from the sale of the CD will be donated to the N.E.D. Cancer Foundation in association with the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation (GCF) to educate the public about gynecologic cancers and support promising research. Both the physical and digital EP include an informational booklet about gynecologic cancers entitled, “What Every Woman Should Know.”

The album is slated for release on September 8th to coincide with Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month.

Amazing!!! I have found comfort in a fellow cancer fighters music. Whenever I feel I can't go on I just play "Fight Back" or "Love Hope & Strength" by the Alarm and my fight is renewed. Aah the power of music x
