Delar med mig av min senaste video Lev Ditt Liv, den första på svenska. Efter att ha gått igenom bröstcancerbehandlingen och kommit tillbaka någorlunda till ett “vanligt” liv så skrev jag låten Live Your Life; en hyllning till livet. Nu har jag gjort en svensk översättning och spelat in låten på nytt hos Lennart Östlund i Polar Studios, Lennart har även spelat in och redigerat videon.
Sharing my song Why Me Why Now, written during my breast cancer treatment. I think the song speaks for itself, this is exactly how I felt at the beginning and this is the song that has affected most people in the same situation.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer that had spread to the lymph nodes in September 2011, at age 45. In May I had lost my job as a music publisher and had decided not to seek for a new job but instead to focus on my gift in music. Summer 2011 I felt very bad and had a lot of anxiety, I didn’t know why and I didn’t recognize myself. By coincidence, I discovered a lump in my left armpit and decided to go to the doctor to check it out. After my first visit at Breast Center in central Stockholm, I knew I had cancer even though the doctors didn’t say it out loud. I got the news in the beginning of September. I couldn’t understand it, no one in my family has had breast cancer. I was shocked and confused but never afraid. The only thing I was concerned about was my economy, not to die. After the shock phase, I felt happy! Finally I knew why I had the anxiety, I think that my body tried to tell me that something was wrong, and now I knew! It might sound strange, but that’s how I felt. I received chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy and I’m so grateful for having wonderful friends that supported me during that time. The one thing I became aware of, was that life is short and that it’s important to take care of my gift, not to wait until tomorrow. So I started to write my first songs. I had no idea that my songs was to touch so many women in the same situation. I released my first album It’s Never Too Late in spring 2013. Besides having solo concerts and singing with a vocal group, I do motivational speaks (and singing my songs) to inspire other people to live their dreams.
