For once I’m not talking about winning a fight in a sparring ring. I’m talking about the fight against Cancer!
The Canadian Cancer Society had a contest for students to write a new Theme Song for 2012. As soon as Mr. Stoodley (my guitar teacher) told me about the contest I immediately wanted to participate and I couldn’t think of a better person to co-write and sing it as a duet than my friend Kelsey Hayes.
Cancer has touched us all in some way or another and it would feel so good if our song was chosen as a motivator for those who are being affected.
This week I also went door-to-door collecting bottles and donatations for our Relay-for-Life team. I’m really looking forward to the relay with my friends next week. Every dollar helps in the research!
I’ve lost one Grandmother to kidney cancer and I can only wish that someday we will Win This Fight and find a cure for cancer.
For the first time I sang in a Coffee House at our school so it was a good opportunity for Kelsey and me to sing our song.
I hope you enjoy our Theme Song – the actual recording that we submitted to the contest sounds a whole lot better than this live video and Michael Lim accompanied us on an accoustic drum. It was very cool 🙂
