‘No Evidence of Disease’ to Perform at Homer Benefit | Alaska Native News

NED is a unique band of six gynecologic oncology surgeons from across the country, they take healing and the arts to a new level. Created as a cover band to entertain their peers at a medical conference, they saw the potential to reach women in a powerful way – through music.

What was started as a novelty meant to entertain, has turned into a powerful awareness movement to give a voice to women effected by gynecologic cancers. ‘No Evidence of Disease’, are the words every cancer patient wants to hear.

It’s not often that a fundraiser matches so perfectly with organizational mission, which is one reason why the Board and Staff at Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic are particularly excited about two events this week.
