I'm sitting here blubbering like a big ol' baby right now. I'm such a tool.
If you've been coming here long you probably know about my own battle with cancer a while back so this video really hit me in the gut.
Such an awesome song and the tribute to those cancer affects - victims, survivors, and their supporters - is absolutely perfect.
Now I'm going to go and put some Visine in my eyes to hide the fact I'm an emotional turd, but before I do let me leave you with this email I received the other day. In light of Martina's video I think this is perfect timing to mention it.
This is a great news story for Martina McBride fans and country fans
There is an American Cancer Society breast cancer walk happening in
Nashville, TN, on Oct. 15. Last year 18,000 participated in this walk
at LP Field to raise money to find cures for breast cancer.
I am a member of the Martina McBride Fan Club and I have formed a
walking team for this event. We have already raised almost $900 in
just 48 hours of fundraising and we have people coming from 4 states
to walk that day with our team in the music city. Our fundraising goal
We are called "Team Martina Gonna Love You Through It." in honor of
Martina's newly released song about breast cancer. We will be walking
for 5 mils that day with thousands of cancer survivors and caregivers.
I don't see that any other music artist in Nashville has a
cancer walk team and we would love to have you help draw attention to
this effort to fight cancer.
Here is our website...
Thanks so much for your time and consideration. We hope that you can
help us by spread the word or doing a story about this great effort.
