Songs About Triumph Over Cancer
This hub is dedicated to Darlin' Karlin
When you're fighting cancer, every day is a milestone.
I have never had cancer, but I know way too many people who have, and who do. I've seen beautiful, bald women battling breast cancer at the Komen Race for the Cure. My son's father survived a rare form of rectal cancer. My father-in-law died of lymphoma. My beloved uncle died of lung cancer. The list goes on.
This being my 50th hub, I wanted to make it special.
This hub is for Karlin. My beautiful, strong, amazingly gracious friend who is fighting for her life. Karlin just finished her 11th grueling week of chemotherapy. She's getting ready to have surgery to remove what remains of the tumor in her breast. The good news is it's down from 4cm to .5cm. She is optimistic it can be a lumpectomy instead of more invasive surgery.
There are hundreds, if not thousands of people praying for Karlin. She is surrounded by love. As I said above, Karlin is strong.
Music is healing. It's a universal fact.
These songs are for her -- and for anyone who is facing tough challenges. Here's to Karlin. Here's to beating breast cancer. Here's to triumphing over life's obstacles.

- When mammograms are wrong
June, and for some reason unbeknownst to me I felt the side of my right breast closest to my armpit. I really don't know what made me touch my breast. It's not something I do often and I guess I've always...
I'm hoping 13 will be a lucky number. Please feel free to add your own song suggestions, including links if you feel like it. Music is powerful. Let's drown that icky cancer out with good thoughts and beautiful notes!!!
