It comes to us quietly

It mutates, it divides

It takes over good

And replaces with bad.


It makes us sick

It kills, it destroys

It makes us poor

And exceedingly sad.


And yet…


It teaches us what’s good

It teaches us what’s right

It teaches us

We have the strength

To carry on with the fight.


And yet…


It isolates us

It leaves us alone

It frustrates us

To figure out what is wrong


It takes our hair

It takes our song

It bankrupts us

As we fight for so long.


And yet…


It brings us together

We pool all our wealth

To look for a cure

To regain all our health.


We run, we walk

We eat, we talk.

We raise the money

When the going is rough.

We will live strong

We are Chad Tough.


We will scream at God

We will curse in the night

And yet His light is still there

Denying cancer’s bite.
