Kolassa says of the song:

My youngest daughter has been fighting Triple Negative Breast Cancer – one of the rarest and most aggressive forms of the disease.  Her attitude and amazing spirit throughout the grueling treatment inspired me to write this song.

My heart really wrote it. The words and melody just poured out of me once I started. I had to rehearse it probably a hundred times to keep from crying while I sang it, and, to be honest, I barely made it through the recording session!
