Head Case Radio : Not Dead
NOT DEAD is a CD featuring 11 of the best unsigned metal bands from around the world! Each band has graciously donated a song to this CD, in support of the cause: to support organizations that are dedicated to research into curing, and care of people afflicted with, Multiple Sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease where the fatty tissue covering the nervous system (Myelin) starts to flake off for unknown reasons. The patient's own immune system then attacks the areas where the myelin has flaked off, creating scars and inhibiting nerve impulses. MS can manifest itself in many ways - from almost indetectability, to complete paralysis, and in rare occasions death. There is no cure. Imagine that one day you wake up and cannot get out of bed. Imagine you have lost your ability to walk - to talk - to take care of yourself, to be independent. Imagine the things you love doing, and have loved your entire life, suddenly being taken away from you. People with MS have to live with the fact that on any day, at any time, the problems above could happen to them, turning their life upside down. It is our hope at Head Case Radio that with this CD, we can generate funds for MS charities who are working to cure the disease, repair the damage caused, and care for those afflicted with this terrible disease. Research into MS also helps people with other, related, autoimmune diseases as well! All proceeds from the sale of this CD are donated evenly between the following charities: * National Multiple Sclerosis Society * The Myelin Project.
