You won't be able to find another cable, unless you can find someone
with a broken board and an intact cable. SS2 memory boards are so old
now that you probably can't even get the part from Sun.

If there are only eight wires, maybe you could solder a bit of normal
8-core ribbon onto the board. It's useless with the cable damaged, so
you've got nothing to lose.
