Fighting epilepsy through music

Michael Gomoll is a man with a mission, a mission inspired by grief and love. In March of 2010, Michael's 5-year old son Joey passed away unexpectedly. He was afflicted with Dravet's Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy. Unable to change the outcome of that story, Michael decided music would be the best way to heal. He established the Joseph Gomoll Foundation, and asked musicians if they would contribute songs to a CD that would raise money to find a cure and help those affected by epilepsy. The response was remarkable. In fact, it was so remarkable, Gomoll is planning on releasing a series of CD's. The first two CD's are now available for you to purchase: Joey's Song, Volume One, and Joey's Song for Kids. Artists on the "grown-up CD" include Robbie Fulks, Justin Currie of Del Amitri, Cowboy Junkies, Neko Case, Michael McDermott, and more. Joey's Song for Kids has contributions from Lowen & Navarro, Ellis Paul, Ralph Covert, Steve Forbert, and others. Each CD costs $11.99 or $19.99 for both. Find out more here.

Thank you for raising awareness for this cause. I also lost a grandchild to Dravet Syndrome in 2010. We can work together to find answers.
