Default Music Can Heal

Was directed to this YT vid this morning and thought I'd share for anyone else who is going through or knows someone fighting cancer. For me, I've been helping my girlfriend of 14 yrs who is about 3 months into a 6 month chemo treatment. She was diagnosed last Jan. with a cancerous tumor in her lower intestine, which has since been removed. It's funny that I grew up a metalhead, and have always disliked the pop scene, and now I am a walking lesson in "Never Say Never".

I hope this moves others as much as it has me:

I know how that is, man. I have a lot of friends and family who have fought cancer, and all too many of them didn't win. If they caught it early and have removed it, she's got a good fighting chance, however.

Yes, she's on Low-Dose and due to fully recover. Right now the chemo is for preventative treatment to make sure it didn't make it's way to lymph nodes and such. It just kills me to have to watch her go through it though.

Update for anyone interested:
J-Net (my GF) had her 2nd to last check-up, and is fully recovered and off all meds as of earlier this month. God, this has been one crappy year.

Thank you TH, plenty of that.

alecsy, yes it does. The personal attachment of a suggestive force can do just about anything.
