Songs for Life

I was asked to be -- and agreed to be -- a judge in a project called "Songs for Life" which is an innovative effort to raise awareness of Multiple Myeloma and fund MM research, as well as research for other cancers.   The project was started by Jenny Ahlstrom who has poured a lot of time and energy into this and I'm happy to play a small part.

Contributors submit songs that are voted on by the general public, before they are narrowed down to those reviewed by the panel of judges for inclusion on a CD that will be released in the next few months (February 2015 is the target date).

When the album is produced, all proceeds will go the CrowdCare Foundation, a non-profit patient-driven organization that funds cancer research.

Jenny asked me to post the following -- there's still time to vote so if you want to listen to a bit of music in your spare time and support the fight against this disease, give the site a visit!
Which songs are your favorite? Vote for the songs you think should be included on the final Songs For Life album to help cancer patients and fund #cancer research. Last day to vote is November 30 at midnight! http://songsforlife.org/vote-2015-submissions-fb/
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!  I am once again thankful for my therapy, my doctor and his team, my supportive family and my friends, including all of you!!
