This CD highlighting 23 of her client's most powerful and healing songs, raises money and awareness for the national organization, the Breast Cancer Fund.

"When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, many of the extraordinary artists and friends I had worked with over the years asked what they could do to help," said Young. "The power of their music provided consolation and support during the most challenging of days. I wanted to share that experience with other women for their own healing process, to promote breast cancer awareness, and to champion the cause of independent music."
$4 per CD sold is donated to the Breast Cancer Fund.
