Country Faces Cancer

Light The Night

Country Faces Cancer (CFC) is an industry-wide effort led by Great American Country's Nan Kelley, a proud lymphoma survivor, to help raise awareness and support for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) through its Light The Night Walk.

Country music fans in partnership with their favorite country artist will raise funds to make a difference in the lives of thousands of patients and their families!

Leukemia is a malignant disease (cancer) of the bone marrow and blood. It is characterized by the uncontrolled accumulation of blood cells. Leukemia is divided into four categories: myelogenous or lymphocytic, each of which can be acute or chronic. The terms myelogenous or lymphocytic denote the cell type involved. The are four major types of leukemia.

Lymphoma is the name for a group of blood cancers that develop in the lymphatic system. Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) are the two main types of lymphoma.

Lymphoma originates in the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is part of the body's immune system, which is the body's defense against infection. The marrow and lymphocytes are part of the immune system. Some other parts of the immune system are the lymph nodes, the lymphatic vessels and the spleen.

Lymphoma starts with a change to a lymphocyte. The change to the lymphocyte causes it to become a lymphoma cell. The lymphoma cells pile up and form masses that gather in the lymph nodes or other parts of the lymphatic system.

Elaine Tennyson plans the 1st Annual Friends Day Celebration in Ontario, Canada.

Elaine Tennyson

Dear Friends,

I hope you and yours are healthy and happy. It was Mother's Day 2009 at Washington Savage's funeral, when I conceived the idea to have a "Friends Day" Celebration. I attended Gary Quinn's "Celebration of Life" the night before, and Kenny MacLean's funeral a few months prior. I recall standing outside the church with Molly Johnson reminiscing and embracing the reality of mortality, saying, "today is Mother's Day, there's Father's Day and Family Day." There should be a "Friends Day." The seed was planted.

That was just the beginning. Like some of you, I've lost many family/friends/acquaintances the last couple of years - twenty one to be exact. I saw friends and acquaintances I hadn't seen or contacted in years at the funerals. We all agreed to "get together soon!" Well, here it is one year later - the way some of us reconnected was at funerals.

Years go by - we get older - and die. Let's get together and Celebrate Friends & Life!

Keith Bradford named as Executive Director of Cashbox Magazine Nashville

Kevin Bradford

by Sandy Graham

When you first speak to Keith Bradford, there is a slight accent you can’t quite place – but definitely not a Tennessee trill to his deep, engaging voice. ‘My Grand-parents on my father’s side were born in Canada, Montreal Quebec actually” Keith says. ‘We were surrounded by French music, jigs reels, polkas as my grandmother on my mother’s side was this little old French woman. That influenced my brother, Richard to play the 5 string banjo and learn all those great songs. I on the other hand was 8 or 9 years old when I took up the accordion. My father’s side of the family came from Montreal, my last name is really Guilbault. I adopted the stage name of Bradford as it was easier to pronounce and certainly easier to spell.”
