Monuments Releasing "Memoirs" Single To Raise Money For Cancer Patient
On October 20th, U.K. act Monuments will sell the previously unreleased track "Memoirs" as a special single to raise money for the treatment of a close friend of the band who has recently been diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer.
Century media comments, "Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (or PMP) is a cancer of the appendix and is so rare that it can only be treated by a small number of specialists, none of whom are in the UK. Treatment must be sought internationally, and the costs are likely to exceed tens of thousands of pounds."
Monuments' Adam Swan (bass) explains: "Hi everyone! We will be releasing 'Memoirs' via Bandcamp as of October 20th. All proceeds will be going to our good friend Laura, who recently found out she has a condition called Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (or PMP), a rare form of cancer of the appendix that affects less than one in a million people. We will be releasing 'Memoirs' to raise money for her as there are very few people in the world who are able to treat this condition and none are in the UK due to its rarity. She will have to travel abroad for the treatment and it will be extremely expensive. There will be a minimum donation of £2 for the track, however it'll be possible to give as much as you want, so please give generously. We would like to give a big shout out to Neema Askari, Joe Garret, John Sprich, James Monteith, Mel Schmidt, Steve Joh and everyone at Century Media for making this possible so quickly. Thank you."
Check out the "Memoirs" trailer below. The band would also like to raise awareness about this condition as it is often misdiagnosed due to its extreme rarity. For further information about PMP, head over to this location.
