    Thumbs up Melissa Etheridge song about breast cancer

    We've been playing this song by Melissa Etheridge about breast cancer, including her own fight with the disease, and it's very, very powerful! It's on her Greatest Hits CD in stores now:

    I Run For Life by Melissa Etheridge

    It's been years since they told her about it
    The darkness her body possessed
    And the scars are still there in the mirror
    Everyday that she gets herself dressed
    Though the pain is miles and miles behind her
    And the fear is now a docile beast
    If you ask her why she is still running
    She'll tell you it makes her complete

    [Chorus:]
    I run for hope
    I run to feel
    I run for the truth
    For all that is real
    I run for your mother your sister your wife
    I run for you and me my friend I run for life

    It's a blur since they told me about it
    How the darkness had taken its toll
    And they cut into my skin and they cut into my body
    But they will never get a piece of my soul
    And now I'm still learning the lesson
    To waken when I hear the call
    And if you ask me why I am still running
    I'll tell you I run for us all

    [Chorus]
    I run for hope
    I run to feel
    I run for the truth
    For all that is real
    I run for your mother your sister your wife
    I run for you and me my friend I run for life

    And someday if they tell you about it
    If the darkness knocks on your door
    Remember her remember me
    We will be running as we have before
    Running for answers
    Running for more

    Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.

    I love that song, but then I am a breast cancer survivor - I was diagnosed in June 1992. I loved it when she lost her hair, but didn't let it get her down. I was the same way - I tried a wig ONE time and then gave it to the American Cancer Society for someone else. I decided if someone didn't like looking at my bald head, they could turn theirs, LOL. I truly admire Melissa for being so upfront with her battle and I hope she remains cancer-free. She is an inspiration!
    You put the light in me...

    WOW! The lyrics are powerful. I admire her courage and strength.

    I wish they could develop some kind of vaccine so that no one would get cancer ever again.

    Take standardized green tea extract every day. It has powerful antioxidants in it. Plus fruits and veggies, of course. Sadly, genetics also plays quite a strong role in it.
