N.E.D. - the Band

Here is some more info about some gyn-oncs who also happen to be musicians. The Gynecological Cancer Foundation is helping raise funds so the band can produce a CD.

This came in an e-mail from GCF.

Rhythm Heals-N.E.D. (no evidence of disease) GCF/SGO Physicians Rock!
NED Band

In March 2008, six gynecologic oncologists got together and created a band, N.E.D. (no evidence of disease). The band's purpose is to create a musical medium for healing is to enhance knowledge about gynecologic cancers and bring hope through rhythm for women undergoing treatment.

The name of the band itself-no evidence of disease-represents the hope that every gynecologic oncologist has for every patient. That at the end of treatment the disease will be gone.

The members of the band are all practicing gynecologic oncologists who spend many hours in the care of women each week-in the operating room, in the treatment room and even at the research bench striving for better ways to treat cancers unique to women.

GCF is accepting donations and soliciting funds to support the production of the band's first CD. Proceeds from the sale of the CD and live performances will be donated to the Gynecologic Cancer Foundation (GCF) whose mission is to educate the public about gynecologic cancers and support promising research.

You can support these SGO/GCF members by donating now to a designated GCF fund by going to

Congratulations to Drs. John Boggess, Joanie Hope, Nimesh Nagarsheth, William Robinson, John Soper and William Winter. You rock!

What a great way to raise awareness.


Every Day is a Blessing!
