The American Cancer Society is a nationwide voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. Their mission is to “concentrate on capacity building in developing cancer societies and on collaboration with other cancer-related organizations throughout the world in carrying out shared strategic directions.”
Nanton and Peterson wrote the song back in 2003 when Peterson, age 12, was undergoing treatment for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
“Hanna and I wrote this song as a part of her healing process. It became her mantra and as we have come to find out, it resonates with many others in a similar situation. It has taken on a life of its own and we’re both really excited to see it being used for such a great cause,” Nanton said.
