YOU 62 Single

Christie Hospital's Young Oncology Unit has a music therapy unit attached, which is where the band  met. Peter Garner, a young stage 4 MM patient  (see Sarah's Story) has been nicknamed Borg for years, but now he is wheelchair bound he adopted the name Borg Ironsides.

They have produced a single, which will go on sale on 21st July, and is available to download on Amazon and Itunes. There will also (hopefully ) be CDs available, but funding needs to be arranged before they can be made.

It has already been played on ITV and BBC, and a full radio interview is available here The single can be heard at 5.36  of that interview., and there are other YouTube clips with videos.

All proceeds will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust- aimed specifically at cancer patients between the ages of 16 and 24. Its aims are to improve the quality of life for them, both during and after treatment. I know the music unit has been a godsend to Peter's family.

I would be most grateful if you could publicise this as much as possible, and buy the single on release! There will be a video to go with it.. The aim is to raise money for a larger music unit. The current one is a little cramped to say the least.
