Hold On – A message of hope for cancer patients

As many of you know I am with M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX and wanted to share this wonderful video with you.

We are approaching “Cancer Survivorship Week” June 1-8, 2013   These words are the chorus of the original song “Hold On, ” written and performed by Greg Lizee, Ph.D., associate professor in MD Anderson’s Melanoma Medical Oncology department. The song’s message is simple: Hope. It’s about positivity, patience and faith — faith that things will get better. You have to hold on through the bad times to reach the good.

The song is dedicated to cancer survivors, anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer, from the time of diagnosis and treatment through the remaining years of life, as well as family members and caregivers who have been affected by the diagnosis. According to the American Cancer Society, there are now more than 13.7 million cancer survivors in the United States, and each one had to hold on during their cancer journey in order for things to get better.
