As part of October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Pioneers For a Cure is proud to announce that we have become the largest showcase of cancer charities on the web.
Pioneers For a Cure records new versions of classic songs to raise money for cancer charities. With nearly 100 songs supporting over 30 charities, Pioneers For a Cure is the largest online showcase of cancer charities.
Contributing artists include Suzanna Vega, Ben E King, Tom Chapin, Randy Brecker, Taylor Barton & G E Smith, Matt White, Bill Evans, David Broza and dozens more. Each artist designates a cancer charity of his or her choice to donate all proceeds generated by song downloads.
