I got a message from Jake Wheat earlier today. Jake wanted to let blog readers know that he is seeking submissions for the 2nd Stomp Out Cancer indie music compilation to be released on October 28th, 2008 under the theme of "Hope." All proceeds will go to Erwing's Sarcoma research.
The 1st Stomp Out Cancer compilation was an effort to honor the life of 27 year-old Steven Mackin, a friend who died from the disease on October 16, 2006.
This year in tribute of Ben Lanman, a nine year-old boy who developed Ewing's at 8 years of age and has since recovered, and the hope that one day there will be a cure (this type of cancer mostly afflicts younger people).
For more information on how to submit songs or how to donate / buy the compilations please visit the project's site at: StompOutCancer.com.
