I love this story!
During chemotherapy for triple-negative breast cancer in 2008 and 2009, singer-songwriter Laura Roppe wrote 13 songs that became her album “I’m Still Here.” One song, “George Clooney,” says “I bet he smells real good.” I bet he does, Laura.
The lyrics to another song, “Float Away:”
She says, this life’s too heavy
I’ve reached the breaking point
If I check out now
I can leave it all behind
But she hears the voice
Of her little girl
Only thing that matters
In this whole world
Gotta find a way
Not to fade away
Good for you, Laura, for turning to your art during this journey.
