Review for Music for a Cure, Irvine, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Music for a Cure truly touched our lives in such a positive way! My son, Ryan michael Bates got cancer back at the age of 15 and loved music and wrestling. Ryan like the band Sugar Ray and wanted to meet them. Not only Did Murphy and Julie Karges and Gretchen,Rodney and Campbell Sheppard welcome us they came over to our home daily and hung out inspired Ryan, gave him 2 guitars and lessons and recorded with in their home studio! The entire band made a birthday video to cheer him on on his 16th birthday. They even invited us when they performed on jay leno and also invited us to the Jingleball. Ryan knew julie wanted to start a nonprofit to help other kids like him and he named it before he passed away on 12/27/01 Music for a Cure!!! Since then they have help others like Ryan by bringing music therapy, instruments and lessons to help the spirit and soul in those sad days in the hospital. Music for a cure and all board members and the band Sugar ray are the most generous, kindess, most giving and caring individuals alive! Kind regards, Debby Bates(Ryan's Mom)
