'In April, I got to sing at one of my most favorite events of the year. Every year, one of my doctors holds a concert to celebrate World Voice Day patients, staff, and even my doctor sings during the concert and it’s basically great fun and great music. The patients that sing all have had something affect their voice from polyps to paralysis, so listening to them sing and being part of the event as a singer is inspirational.
Last year, I pretty much cried my whole song (first year with metastatic diagnosis), this year I felt stronger, more resilient, and a little less nervous. I almost cried at the end of my song because the lyrics really hit my heart, ‘Sometimes I wonder, where I’ve been…I may not win, but I can’t be thrown out here on my own.’ The lyrics took my breath away for a minute, but I didn’t break.'
I have the opportunity to sing again this coming August at the Brushes with Cancer event where artist and cancer survivors come together to create inspirational pieces. More info to follow, but I hope to see you there! 💋 #LifeIsYourCanvas
