Music saves kids with cancer at EMMC

How one student organization is making a difference

BANGOR - Rock out at Curva Ultra Lounge Friday, April 06, 2012. The Husson/NESCom chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is hosting the second annual Music Saved Me Benefit Show - featuring five Maine-based bands, including Paranoid Social Club, When Particles Collide, Mines of Paris, One Shot Nothing and The Transducers. Z 107.3's Paul Wolfe hosts the show.

'It's going to be a blast,' said Conor Sweeney, who is involved in publicity for the event. He's hoping to reach out beyond the Husson Campus and have the public from the greater Bangor area attend to help raise money. 'The goal was to mainstream it and make sure the community knows about it.'

Proceeds raised from Music Saved Me will benefit pediatric oncology at Eastern Maine Medical Center. Leukemia survivor Erin Falwell is helping organize Music Saved Me for its second year, as it has become an annual event for PRSSA.
