N.E.D. = No Evidence of Disease

The email stated that one of the ways that money was being raised was through the sale of a CD with styles ranging from indie to folk-rock. Below is more from the email.

"The music and lyrics are original, written by members of the band who collaborated primarily through video conferencing. If you listen closely to the lyrics, you will hear a fresh and sympathetic approach to issues women with cancer and their families face. The CD is slated for release on September 8th to coincide with Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month. Both the physical and digital EP include an informational booklet about gynecologic cancers entitled, “What Every Woman Should Know.” 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.

Also worth noting – N.E.D.’s drummer, Dr. Nimesh Nagarsheth, will be releasing a book, Music and Cancer: A Prescription for Healing, in mid-September, 2009. The book opens with a moving foreword by Fran Drescher, President and Visionary of the Cancer Schmancer Movement."

The weekend of November 6-8, 2009 is the inaugural Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Movement Weekend and GCF’s half marathon/5K race.

There is a N.E.D. widget that you can grab here, that you can put on your blog or website. It gives more information and will keep you up to date. I have the widget on the left sidebar of my main blog.

Cancer has impacted my family and friends and I'd like to suppport all the causes that I can to fight this horrible disease. I think the work being done here is amazing and a wonderful step in the right direction.

Hopefully some of you will consider making a donation, purchasing the CD, or book.

And for those of you who would like the CD for free, I have a copy that was given to me at no cost by N.E.D. and Drew who is doing their marketing at Two Sheps That Pass.

Yes, we are giving away a CD! If you'd like to win, please let me know in a comment below. Thank you!

*Updated 9/1/09* - I just realized that I did not give a deadline for the contest. You have until midnight Friday, September 11th to leave a comment. The winner will be chosen at random and notified by email. The contest is open to U.S. Residents only who are 18 years of age and older. Good luck everyone!
