Ring the Bell for Life

by Harry Smith

We ring the bell for life for
Cancer patients today.
We ring the bell for life because,
we have something to say.

We can not allow the enemy,
Cancer, to win this fight.
We must win this fight, we
must fight with all our might.

Today, Cancer is becoming more
of a chronic illness, and it can be
treated to sustain life. With the
medication used for treatment,
the patient has a lot to sacrifice.

If cancer is caught early,
you have a good chance at a cure.
If it is not caught early,
you have a lot of pain to endure.

As a country we have a long way
to go. If we care about our people,
why don't we let it show?

The cancer patients must deal with
the treatments to stay alive. But they
also, must deal with the cost as they
struggle to survive.

Cancer patients after treatment are often
left disabled and must wait years to
receive disability support. Unfortunately
sometimes before receiving support they
must go to court.

The average cancer patient loses everything
before getting any help to survive.
They spend as much time fighting for
financial survival as they do fighting to
stay alive.

We must ring the bell of life for cancer
patients to bring awareness of their
struggles everywhere.
We must let these cancer patients know
that, we really do care!

We need laws to help,
the cancer patients fighting,
for financial survival,
implemented now!


People suffering with Cancer need our help.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
