NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE -  To the best of my knowledge, Martina McBride does not have, nor has ever had, breast cancer. I pray that she never does. That being said, however, she gets us. To my heart, she gets us totally. Even if you don’t care for country music (or even western :), please just read these lyrics. "I’m gonna love you through it." Thank you, Martina. For using your incredible power for good.

"I'm gonna love you through it"
- Martina McBride

she dropped the phone and burst into tears
the doctor just conformed her fears
her husband held it and held her tight
cancer don’t discriminate or care if you’re just 38
with three kids who need her in their lives
he said, “i know that you’re afraid and i am, too
but you’ll never be alone, i promise you”

when you’re weak, i’ll be strong
when you let go, i’ll hold on
when you need to cry, i swear that i’ll be there to dry your eyes
when you feel lost and scared to death,
like you can’t take one more breath
just take my hand, together we can do this
i’m gonna love you through it.

she made it through the surgery fine
they said they cut her just in time
but they had to take more than they planned
now it’s forced smiles and baggy shirts
to hide what cancer took from her
but she just wants to feel like a woman again
she said, “ i don’t think i can do this anymore”
he took her in his arms and said “that’s what my love is for”

and when the road gets too long

just take my hand, together we can do it
i’m gonna love you through it.
i’m gonna love you through it.
