Album for a cure

This campaign involves releasing my first ever solo album and donating all of the proceeds to Breast Cancer Research at Duke. This campaign will start October 1st in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month and run for 30 days. This fundraising campaign has projected hopes to raise $10,000 within its 30 day time frame.

Everybody who donates will receive a digital download of my new solo album right into their inbox on October 30th before it's available to the rest of the world. Yes you will be the first ones to hear it!

Your donations go directly toward cutting-edge cancer research, education, and exceptional patient care at Duke Cancer Institute. Your generous support will provide hope to patients and families fighting cancer and ensures that Duke Cancer Research can continue the breakthrough work that has already begun.

I would love to have you on my team during this very special time so we can make a difference together in finding a cure. Together we can change the rules in the fight against cancer! Be on the lookout for your email with your new music on October 30th!
