Summary Presents: “Stomp Out Cancer,” Indie Musicians Fight Ewing’s Sarcoma - Volume 2. Their goal is to raise as much money as they can for Ewing’s Sarcoma research. The sale of the CD directs 100% of the proceeds to fund research for less toxic treatment methods, and early detection methods for people with Ewing's Sarcoma.

The album will be released on October 28th, 2008, and will feature an initial 500 short run copies. Distribution would be through on-line sales, a CD release party, a co-op between several of the volunteer staff selling at various places, and also in select stores.

They will accept all genres, but it must be appropriate for the theme of the CD. This CD is dedicated to those who suffer from Ewing's Sarcoma, therefore songs should be about enjoying life, a song about an artist's own experience with cancer, or something that is in tribute. Songs that honor those who have cancer, or overcoming obstacles are always good.

Ewing’s Sarcoma is the common name for primitive neuroectodermal tumor. It is a rare disease in which cancer cells are found in the bone or soft tissue. The most common areas in which it occurs are the pelvis, the femur, the humerus, and the ribs.

The frequency in the United States depends on the patient’s age, with a rate of 0.3 case per 1,000,000 children in those younger than 3 years of age to as high as 4.6 cases per 1,000,000 in adolescents aged 15 – 19 years. Ewing’s Sarcoma does not have a special fund allotted by the American Cancer Society, and is also the most under funded for research and support.
