    Well shit.... i doubt many people expected this from Tom but f*** it. I personally appreciate messages like this, and I'm guessing there mightve been something that happened to him to spark this kind of motion. Well done man. Great message.

    I posted a reaction to this one but it seems like SLtoos is suppressing a lot of my videos because I talk about a lot of conservative politics. It doesn't seem to be coming up in search results. If you'd like to check it out: Also my People So Stupid reaction:


    Man Tom makes songs telling the truth but this is serious have faith and fight it you are brave.

    Tom, my mom died of Cancer 04.25.2020 my heart is broken like something I cant explain. I also had cancer last year. I had Hodgkin's lymphoma stage 2b. I was able to beat cancer, but Tom, it took my mom. Sometimes I wish it took me instead but then i remembered i promised my mom I would make her a proud grandmother and at the end of this month, I'm going to the doctor to do just that. I'm going to call my baby my mothers name if it's a girl or my uncles name (he died of cancer too) if it's a boy. Damn Tom this song hit me hard. Tears are rolling down my face. But thank you for bringing awareness. Thank you for making music that touches the soul. Thank you man, thank you. God bless you.

    I get what you were trying to do with this song Tom, and it’s an overall positive message, but I have to take exception to the first few verses. The suggestion that there is some cure being hidden away but the “cancer industry” is hiding it for money is preposterous. Many of the doctors and nurses who treat this disease also have the disease or friends and family with this disease. What a slap in the face to the thousands of medical providers and researchers who devote our lives to fighting this disease.

    My grandma ended up with cancer. She lives on the other side of the country. We saw her a year ago and she got diagnosed this winter. I can’t go see her because of COVID and money. She doesn’t like calling, so I write her, she said it make her feel like people remember her. 🖤🖤

    There's been a cure for cancer since the '60s and it was suppressed and the inventor was murdered. Electromagnetic healing apparatus or something like that. "If you want to know the secrets of the universe think frequency and vibration" Nikola Tesla.

    There's no money in the cure of cancer. I've been battling stage 4 breast cancer for over two years. Went to Mexico for treatment, i arrived in a wheelchair and walked out on my own. Mexico gave me the strength to fight. Weed gave me my life back. Never give up. Keep fighting. God bless

  • benpglobe

    I balled my fucking eyes out hearing this for the first time and it really made me think of the struggle my family members and others have gone through. Much love to anyone struggling with cancer my heart goes out to everyone ❤️❤️❤️

    I 10000% believe there has been or is a cure they refuse to let us have because of greed for money and how profitable the pharmaceutical industry is. It’s so incredibly sad.

    I dont think I've ever shared someone's music to my social media before. Hell, I dont even know the true pain of losing someone to cancer but i have shared this for my friends to see... There was a very powerful message here and something about it made me tap into some sentiments that the military had taught me to lock away.. Good job man, and keep up the great work while all of us hurry up and wait for your next masterpiece 🇺🇲🍻

    To address the metalhead Fantano fuckboys who literally came over here to spread hate, even on this kind of song. Really? Do you really think its not an asshole thing to hate on a song about cancer and the people who go through it? Kind of a shitty thing to do even though its a Tom Macdonald song, you aren't any better than the person you are literally hating on as well, considering the fact you would stoop as low to berating people who have gone through these events and show them no remorse no matter what they've gone through. Put down the phone and look in the mirror, you're the scum of the earth.

    I took my mom to the stylist when she had lung cancer and was going through treatment. She was losing her hair and they were kind enough to offer free, professional wigs to cancer patients. I remember when she shaved he head. When it went into remission it was the first time I ever saw her natural hair color. She let it grow in naturally and I never realized how beautiful her natural hair color was. Cancer takes a lot from us, but it also gives *something* back. When you live through something like that you don't really take life for granted any more. Momento mori, my friends. Mono no aware.

    My sis died to leukemia at 18. She had it since 3. I was born to give her my bone marrow to try and save her life. It gave her an extra 10 years.

    Thanks Tom for this wonderful song. My father survived a horrible bout of testicular cancer for 5 years. He had over 70 chemo treatment during all that and I was only 5 at the time and never thought I would ever have my father but he survived for another 20 years and passed away in July of this year from a heart attack. I was fortunate to have him in my life and glad he stuck around with us. I miss him so much!! your song is an inspiration to a lot of people🤙🏻🤙🏻

    Mate this video/song really hits me hard, I lost my dad 10 years ago to cancer, for 3 months I was by his bedside slowly watching him deteriorate, I got the call from my mum 3am saying that she thought he was ready, I literally was 1 minute late for his last breath. Hopefully a cure is released someday soon. It's no way for someone to go out, id hate to think of my 2 girls watching me slowly pass away from this horrible disease. Sorry for the long comment and thanks for this great song bro. Keep up your awesome work. Cheers

    Thanks, Tom. My favorite line was when you said/say, “Our best defense is living like we do not know what cancer is.” Cancer tests are at least 85% inaccurate according to Adam Conover from the Adam Ruins Everything TV show.
