I was surfing the internet looking for some new ideas for guests for the show when I happened upon April Samuels bio. Not only is she a kick a$$ drummer, she is also a survivor of breast cancer.
April has been playing drums since the age of 5. She's played with garage bands with her older brother and later moved into the majors when she studied music at the University of North Texas.
As April developed her own musical style, she began writing songs that have been used on the Discover Channel.
She started her own booking agency where she booked over 50 different regional bands, handling as many as 13 at one time and continues to play 120 shows a year.
April was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer in in 2010. April decided she would start her own non-for-profit organization called "Breast Cancer Can Stick It". She has raised over $60,000.00 to date to help find a cure for breast cancer. April's motto "Breast Cancer Can Stick It" has been seen on T-Shirts, water bottles, bags, bass drum heads and cars across the country.
April's unique, energetic and music-minded events rock the nation and now can ultimately STICK IT to breast cancer. Her upcoming Drummathon in Dallas, TX will host over 100 drummers to raise awareness and funds for the cure.
