My inspiration.

If you know know how important music is in my life. It's what I've wanted to be a part of since I was a little girl. When I was 17, I met Andrew McMahon w/ his then band, Something Corporate. That concert changed my life. I followed Andrew's carreer and SC split up for a while and he formed Jack's Mannequin. During JM's album production and tour, Andrew was diagnosed with ALL, a type of Luekemia. When he released his documentary, "Dear Jack," it was another moment in my life that would change me because of Andrew. If you haven't seen it, please do. It shows you the real process of what these patients go through...every aspect of it. I cry everytime I watch it....he's one of the people I admire most and his music is what keeps me going every I know that the least I can do is fight to find a cure for this awful disease.

“my name is andrew mcmahon, 22 years old, i play for two bands one’s called jack’s mannequin one’s called something corporate...and err, i am now officially a leukemia patient.”
