N.E.D. - Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted. Things have been a bit hectic as we try to settle into our new life here in Oregon! I'll have an update soon, and I hope to get back to regular posting as well. I have a lot of ideas floating around that I want to share!

But - today - I want to bring something to your attention. September (TOMORROW! Yikes!) is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month. I wasn't aware of this fact until I received an email a little bit ago letting me know this. I was also asked to share this with you all here on my blog and I agreed because it is SO important!

On September 8, there will be a CD release party for a band called N.E.D. This band is made up of six doctors - gynecologic oncologists. N.E.D. stands for No Evidence of Disease. This "represents the hope that every gynecologic oncologist has for every patient: at the end of treatment the disease will be gone." This group of doctors is passionate about their cause and hope that their music will help bring awareness and knowledge about gynecologic cancers.

Check out this great CD - and pass on the good word about the work that this band is doing to raise awareness about cancer! (The music is all original and it's really good in my opinion!) :) On the widget below you can hear the music, learn more about N.E.D., the facts, etc. If you're so drawn, you can donate as well.
