Various Artists: Coming Together for a Cure, Vol. 2

Coming Together For A Cure, Vol. 2 is a project curated by Ryan Benton, 27, of Wichita, KS. Benton was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy when he was three years old; he was given a life expectancy of late teens to early twenties. With the help of adult stem cell therapy, Benton has seen his symptoms reverse with no negative side effects whatsoever. This is especially noteworthy, considering Muscular Dystrophy is widely considered to have no known cure. 

 “In the fall of 2008 I traveled to Costa Rica to be treated for the first time with adult stem cells. I had to travel out of country because the all natural treatment was then and currently now not available in the states. After receiving my first treatment I began gaining back strength and have since gone back on seven separate trips for continued treatment. 

Stem Cell Therapy is the first form of medicine that has ever truly helped with the digression of this disease. Stem Cell Therapy is one of the most promising and revolutionary forms of medicine to date. I can attest to this first hand after seeing the positive effects it has had on my debilitating health. Along with my disease it has shown great promise and potential in treating other fatal diseases. We need to embrace this remarkable form of medicine here in the U.S. and outlaw its ban. I am almost certain that without these treatments I would not be alive today. “ – Ryan Benton

Benton has teamed up with Air House Records to put together a benefit compilation featuring fifteen amazing tracks from national artists such as Thee Oh Sees, Cave Singers, Elf Power, Shine Brothers (former member of Black Angels) and members of Dr. Dog. Proceeds will go entirely towards helping fund adult stem cell therapy and research.
