October is “Breast Cancer” month and I am so thankful that God has let me live to tell all about my survival. A good friend of mine, Tom Grant & I wrote a song about cancer survival, because we both had cancer. It is called “I’m Gonna Beat This Thing”. (The song is on my album “Too Good To Be Bad” that you can purchase on my website.) This was on a Wednesday, and we were suppose to perform at Summit Hospital on Friday. Tom had an idea and he knew how much I love to write songs, and I was a survivor, so he asked me to write it with him. He asked me what I said the most, while I was taking chemotherapy. And I said, “I’m gonna beat this thing!” The song is the best I’ve ever had the privelege of being a part of. It is a beautiful song. My cousin uses it as their theme song in her Breast Cancer Survival Group that meets once a month. I just want to take this opportunity to tell everyone that is a victim of this terrible disease to stay strong, never give up, try to eat (even though it’s hard, my husband and my kids brought me broccoli, cauliflower & carrots instead of flowers!!!!!!) It’s hard, and you’re going to be so weak, but just believe that God will see you through it. I had breast cancer at the age of 38, I thought I was too young, but this disease doesn’t discriminate! No one in my family had ever had cancer. So I was the first, and I had a radical mastectomy. But that was then, and this is now! I’ve been fine all these years. I may have been too young to have breast cancer, but I’m very strong and still surviving. I would like for the American Cancer Society to use this song, because it is so inspiring for anyone going through this. Amen!
