Making music and raising awareness go hand in hand for husband-wife duo Che-Val.

"With our music we try to take a positive approach with everything," said musician and producer Kenny Cash. "There is enough negative in the world and there's enough negative stuff happening in the music industry."

On Tuesday, November 18th, Che-Val released their latest project "Don't Give Up On Me," for purchase with all proceeds earned from downloads and stream being donated to the National Parkinson Foundation - a cause close to Kenny's heart.

"For some reason, I was in my car driving listening back to the mix and it made me think of my situation with my mom having Parkinson's Disease. My grandfather was also diagnosed with the disease," said Kenny.

Singer/songwriter Laura Cash said, "Kenny has always felt a little helpless with it. He felt that this is a way I can feel like I am doing something. There is no know cure so he felt that they way he could give back is to help raise money for research."

The song has helped the Cash's in more ways than just raising awareness and funds for the disease.

"It really helped me deal with my personal situation," said Kenny. "I think one of the best things you can do as a musician is give your audience something that is pure to you and something that means a lot to you. We knew that we wanted to give back. More and more people are being diagnosed every year [with Parkinson's Disease] and it is something that is going to continue to rise. Even if this makes one person's life a little bit easier, I would be really happy with that."
