My friend, Brandon Arend is a 38 year old songwriter from a rising rock band that was diagnosed with an aggressive rare form of testicular cancer in June 2015. He fought It and won. He also wrote songs that were uplifting and inspirational, that saved his soul while he was sick. His body and mind were severely damaged from the treatments and it has taken two years of recovery to to have the emotional and physical strength to ask you to help raise money for the LiveStrong Foundation . He believes that selling a great record fro his band, Delta, for charity as a platform for cancer awareness will raise more money for the fight against cancer and give something more positive to those afflicted.
