Group of 20 Breast Cancer Survivors Join Singing GroupThe Breast Cancer Site
Beating the fight against breast cancer is often a journey filled with loving supporters. According to the Daily Mail, a group of 20 survivors have joined a singing choir and released a cover single called “You Raised Me Up.”
Proceeds from the song will help fund the Breast Cancer Campaign. Established singer Camilla Kerslake and the trio Blake also lent their vocals to the song. Kerslake has been touched by breast cancer herself, when her mother was diagnosed in 2011.
“‘You Raise Me Up’ is an incredibly poignant, yet uplifting song about what you can achieve when someone you love supports you,” Kerslake wrote in a statement. “I chose it because, in a way, it reflects the struggle our wonderful survivors’ choir and cancer sufferers everywhere and their families face daily.”
One of the members of the group, Sharon Malyan, battled breast cancer for a year. After her journey she felt she had to give back to impact the quality of life of those living with the disease.
The single is being released Oct. 13 and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Breast Cancer Campaign.
