Texan fan Rory de la Rosa lost his six-year-old daughter Ainslee to cancer last year. Shortly afterwards, he himself was diagnosed with the same illness. But Rory didn't fall into despair. He wanted "to tell Chris Cornell how much his music impacted his life and of the bond it helped create for him and his daughter," says Karen, a carer at Rory's hospice. Together, they succeeded in getting a message to Chris via the internet.

Chris was touched by the story and wrote back - eventually resulting in a unique creative collaboration. Rory had written a poem about his daughter's tragedy. Moved by the words, Chris suggested they turn the poem into a song. "It was a pleasure to put it to music and an honor," he says. Now you can download "I Promise It's Not Goodbye" at In return, Chris hopes you will make a donation in memory of Ainslee and help ease the financial burden of disease. All money raised will go direct to Rory's family to help pay medical bills.
