Martina McBride's New Cancer Tribute Could Really Change Lives (VIDEO)

Healthy Living 27

martina mcbride I'm going to love you through it videoCountry singer Martina McBride's new song "I'm Going to Love You Through It" is being called "cancer's first theme song." Although McBride has never battled the disease, she seems to be very passionate about inspiring, supporting, and "loving on" those who have. Nothing wrong with that!

The anthem's lyrics are about a woman diagnosed with breast cancer, and like many country songs, you spend about four minutes learning about the woman's journey. That's emotional in itself, but the video is so much more. It encompasses many stories, including everyday women and various famous cancer activists and survivors, including Sheryl Crow, Robin Roberts, and Hoda Kotb. Katie Couric makes an appearance, too, discussing her late husband's colon cancer.

Whether you're a cancer patient, survivor, loved one of either, or neither, this is the kind of song and music video you can't help but be moved by. 

I also love when celebs come together to admit, "Yeah, I've been there, and it was hard, but I got through it," because their battles will most likely inspire and comfort others. 

Here's the video if you haven't caught it yet.

I admit, it made me tear up!! One thing, though ... McBride says she's all about "changing lives," which is awesome. In the past, she's lent her star power to Stand Up to Cancer. Now, hopefully, she can also parlay some proceeds from song and/or video downloads or some such to raising money for cancer research. By taking this tribute to that level, McBride could really make a difference.

What do you think of this video?

I loved the song and video.  What all those women have said is true.  I couldnt have gotten through my cancer treatments without the love and support of my family and friends.  Especially my mom, who stayed with me for two months.

Do you know for a fact that she is not going to use the proceeds for cancer causes??  You ruined the article by your snarkiness.

It made me cry. My mom is an anal cancer survivor, she is amazing. I also have a friend who is battling a very rare peripheral nerve sheath tumor for the 3rd time at 20 years old.



This song nails it. The strong carry the weak, and we help them through it :)

Love this vidoe and it made me cry and think of my mom because she was 52 when she lost her battle to breast cancer.

As a Cancer Survivor, I had an incredible support group I never thought was possible. God has enabled me to support others who have been diagnosed after me. Thank You Martina for putting it into words
