N.E.D. is a rock band with a purpose. That's how they were described to me in a recent email.

"The group is comprised of six musically talented gynecologic cancer surgeons hailing from all four corners of the U.S. (N.E.D. is an acronym for "No Evidence of Disease"-a phrase that every gynecologic oncologist hopes to tell a patient after undergoing cancer treatment.) The band's mission is to enhance knowledge about the disease, bring hope through rhythm for women undergoing treatment, and raise awareness & money for the fight against women's reproductive cancers."
According to the website Race to End Women's Cancer, every seven minutes a woman hears the diagnosis of a gynecologic cancer. About 80,000 women each year. The Gynecologic Cancer Foundation is dedicated to gynecologic cancer prevention, early detection and optimal treatment.
