Dancing With NED


Each year about 90,000 women are diagnosed with a GYN cancer, these are the below the belt cancers no one wants to talk about. But a maverick rock band N.E.D. (No Evidence of Disease) is determined to crank up the noise. Made up of 6 GYN oncologists, these doc-rockers live all over the country, but have managed to release 2 cd?s of original music and tour the nation as the lightening rod for women?s cancers.

Spark Media, an award-winning documentary production company, heard about the band shortly after it?s formation and ever since has been following the six surgeons and their patients across the country. With over 300 hours of footage, the documentary feature is nearing final stages of production and is slated for release Spring 2012.

DANCING WITH N.E.D. captures, and will promote a critical turning point in our nation’s attitude to women’s health. In collaboration with LIVESTRONG and other leading cancer organizations, the documentary will disseminate nationwide a message of inclusion, understanding and healing. The time has come to listen.

    I have had cervical cancer and so far, I am a survivor. It’s been less than a year since I had surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. It is not a subject that gets enough attention considering how many women suffer from this.

  2. Ellen says:

    Fantastic, moving, can’t wait to see more!

  3. Will says:

    Kudos, once again, to Spark Media and all they are doing to get this on the map!

Blessings all….

    Thanks Dr Hope for your skill, endurance, and strength for 9 hour surgery to successfully debunk my ovarian cancer tumor. I have 3 more weeks of chemo and my CA-125 went down from 6,000 initially to 50 now. Listening to your songs brought me joy. Thank you all for doing what you do so well.
