N.E.D. (NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE) is an unconventional rock band made up of six GYN surgeons, each passionate about music and outraged by the wall of silence surrounding these types of women’s cancers. The band’s name comes from the three words every patient prays to hear, "No Evidence of Disease." The musicians/surgeons strive to save lives as doctors of patients who endure heartwrenching journeys that test the limits of physical and emotional endurance.
Of 90,000 women diagnosed with a GYN cancer every year, 29,000 will die. GYN cancers are also a leading cause of death for young Hispanic and African Americans. Yet despite these cancers regularly claiming the lives of mothers, daughters, sisters, partners and aunts, GYN cancer research receives a mere fraction – not even 1% – of what goes into big business breastcancer research. Boulder's own Clovis Oncology brings the band to Colorado with C.O.C.A. in order to spread awareness. This event is a benefit for Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance.
