Stand Up To Cancer

Don't forget to watch the "Stand up to Cancer" on ABC, NBC and CBS networks this weekend. You can check it out at the following link http://su2c.standup2cancer.org/ and here's the song that was composed for this event.

Just Stand Up

The heart is stronger than you think, it's like it can go through anything
And even when you think it can't, It finds a way to still push on...though

Sometimes you want to run away, Ain't got the patience for the pain
And if you don't believe it, look into your heart...the beat goes on!

I'm telling you that things get better, through whatever,
If you fall, dust it off, don't let up
Don't you know you can go...be your own miracle
You need to know.

If the mind keeps thinking you've had enough
But the heart keeps telling you.....DON'T GIVE UP
Who are we to be questioning, wondering what is what?
DON'T GIVE UP.....through it all "Just Stand Up"!!!

It's like we all have better days, problems getting all up in your face
Just because you go through it, don't mean it, got to take control, no.

You ain't gotta find no hiding place, because the heart can beat the hate
Don't wanna let your mind keep playin' you
And sayin' ....you can't go on...I'm tellin' you that

Things get better, through whatever,
If you fall, dust it off, don't let up!
Don't you know you can go...be your own miracle..you need to know.

If the mind keeps thinkin' you've had enough
But if the heart keeps telling you......DON'T GIVE UP
Who are we to be questioning, Wondering what is what?
DON'T GIVE UP.....through it all "Just stand up"!!

You don't gotta be a prisoner in your mind, If you fall, dust it off
You can live your life, yeah! Let your heart be your guide, yeah, yeah, yeah!
And you will know that you're good if you trust in the good
Everything will be alright, yeah
Light up the dark, if you follow your heart and it will get better
Through whatever.

If the mind keeps thinkin' you've had enough
But if the heart keeps tellin' you......DON'T GIVE UP!
Who are we to be questioning, Wondering what is what?
DON'T GIVE UP.....through it all "Just stand up"!!

If the mind keeps thinkin' you've had enough
But if the heart keeps tellin' you.....DON'T GIVE UP!
Who are we to be questioning, Wondering what is what?
DON'T GIVE UP.....through it all "Just stand up"!!


You got it in you, find it within
You got it in now, find it within now.
You got it in you, find it within
You got it in now, find it within now.

You got it in you, Find it within, You got it in you, Find it within now, Find it within you, Find it within.

Through it all......JUST STAND UP!!!

You have done an exceptional job composing this website. Your postings are very informative and I can certainly relate with many of the things you have mentioned. A member of my family is struggling with cancer and this is a wonderful resource for him, my family members and myself.
Great work! Look forward to the coming postings!

I wish I can "stand up" for my late mum-in-law, but she passed away on 5th September 2008. Anyway thanks Debbie for creating this blog. I hope it can help others who's struggling with cancer.
