Fight Song

Last night hubby and I watched a show that we only watch occasionally-America's Got Talent.  It was nearing the end of the show and a young high school girl, age 16, came on to sing this song.
Her story is that a year ago, she was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer and this disease has impacted my family.  Eleven years ago, my sister passed away from it after an 8 year battle with multiple surgeries and many rounds of chemo.  A year ago, I discovered I had an Ovarian cyst/tumor and faced that awful question of whether I also had it.  I am so very thankful that I did not have it; however the unknown was terrifying, especially given the fact that I watched my sister battle through it.  I have a dear blogging friend, Kathy at Empty Nest Full Heart who is battling it currently.
As this young high schooler sang, the entire audience gave her a standing ovation.  I loved her spirit and was so touched by her; to be fighting for her life at such a young age shows that she truly has a courageous spirit.  May she live a long life and defeat the odds.
Cherish every day you are given!


  1. Mom missed that, but we are adding our prayers and good thoughts to yours for that young girl.

  2. I saw it too.. I cried she was amazing and Symon was so touched too...

  3. Wow, 16? So young! I wish I would have seen her sing. I'll add her to my prayer list.
