EIGHTH DAY NATION’S
CANCER AWARENESS & SUPPORT
We are the "World's Next Last Greatest Rock Band". Our new album "ATTILA" is something to be proud of indeed, but what we are just as focused on is this campaign to bring music to those who have had cancer, or are going through cancer treatments, along with their caregivers. The goal is to simply make someone's day just a little bit better, and as a 3-time cancer survivor, I can tell you that music is an important part of that. We've included the caregivers as they truly are the unsung hero's of the cancer fight. We are also including the links to some of the best cancer support/research groups in the world for you to investigate. These are the people on the front line giving help on so many levels. So check out our first single "What I Keep" if you want a sample of the album before you buy it, but be sure to check out these great groups and all the awesome things they are doing.
