Support N.E.D. and Sponsor Rhythm Heals

Become a sponsor for Rhythm Heals, a special evening celebrating the role music plays in treating women’s cancer when N.E.D. comes to the Triangle on Feb. 27 and 28.

N.E.D. (No Evidence of Disease) is a band comprised of six Gynecologic Oncologists, including UNC's own John Soper and John Boggess. The band released an EP in September, and they have two upcoming shows in the Triangle. N.E.D.'s mission is to raise awareness - and make a noise - for Gyn (female reproductive) Cancers. Some cancers have a ribbon - Gyn Cancers have a Rock Band!

N.E.D. recorded an EP of original music that was release last September on Motema Records, and have been conducting fundraising concerts across the country. You can get involved in many ways! There will be a Patron's dinner on Saturday, Feb. 27 before the concert, from 6:30 - 8:30 at East 54, Chapel Hill's most exciting new urban development. This event will feature a formal sit down dinner, jazz entertainment and special presentations highlighting Gyn Cancer awareness. The evening will be emceed by a celebrity DJ from 96 Rock and promises to be a night not to be forgotten.

Immediately following the Patron's Dinner will be a concert by N.E.D. at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, with Birds and Arrows as opening act. This event will go from 8:30 until 11:00.

On Sunday night, N.E.D. will play a second concert in Raleigh at the historic Lincoln Theater. A reception will be held from 7:00 until 8:00 and then The Proclivities will open the music entertainment followed by N.E.D.

All proceeds from the weekends event will help create a patient support resource for Gyn Cancer Patients from UNC/REX Hospitals and to the N.E.D. fund, Marjie's Fund and the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation. See more information about becoming a Rhythm Heals sponsor here.
