Our "Comps For A Cause" Series continues with 'F*@! Cancer'!
September is National Blood Cancer Awareness Month, and this year, All We Got! is trying to help give hope and support to those affected by Lymphoma & Leukemia. You never expect to be 23 years old and receiving a phone call from your best friend saying, "Hey, so...I have cancer." I'm sure you also never expect to be the 23 year old who is told they have cancer. The AWG! family knows both of these scenarios all too well. Brian (AWG team member) was diagnosed with AML, and thankfully 7 years later we still have him here!
Why the LLS?
(A message from Brian) The LLS is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to blood cancers. Their mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of lives of patients and their families. In addition to funding doctors & researchers from Philadelphia to Oregon who are advancing the next generation of cancer treatments & therapies, LLS also provides top notch support services to patients, survivors, families, and caregivers.
All We Got! is helping LLS to push the limits of cancer research and helping those patients and caregivers live longer better lives.
The stories don't stop there, while compiling the songs for this comp, bands shared stories about the survivors in their life, as well as those who have passed. The sentiment we all share is F*@! Cancer!
