The band performed for staff, families and patients, and the performance was simulcast via CCTV to patient rooms and other areas of the hospital. In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness month, the band is adding gold ribbons (the official symbol of childhood cancer awareness) to its online properties, and asking fans to support the movement.
