I thank the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation for listening to our story, being open to help spread the word and wanting to be at the Not Just a Pretty Face musical memorial in his honor," said Kim Harty, Brenner’s mother. "Brenner was a great person that shouldn't have died from Juvenile Diabetes. We learned two important things from his death that need to be shared. The first is that Juvenile Diabetes can kill quickly, within a matter of days. The second is that as a child most are sheltered in dealing with their disease...This doesn't work when that child reaches adulthood and society doesn't care anymore that you are different. While Brenner was a champ at dealing with his disease as a child, he went through a period of being sick of being different, as do many with diseases or mental challenges in young adulthood.”

Carin Beam of Chicks Throwing Bricks said, “A Tribute EP is especially great for anyone who can't be at the Spike Hill concert and who would want to share in the music, and want to support this effort.”
