No You Cant'cer (Ballad Arrangment)

2017 Hero of Hope Patient Award winner Melissa Marshall wrote the song “No You Cant’cer” as a way to help her cope with her colon cancer diagnosis. As a performer, she was inspired to use music as a creative outlet to tell her cancer that it was not going to get the best of her and to help empower other people going through the same difficult journey.
