"I have been a part of musical groups my whole life - church choirs, college choirs, band, etc. - and I have never been impacted by those experiences as much as my involvement with Sing to Live® has impacted me. I am so grateful as a breast cancer survivor to have a musical outlet, but not only that, it's a musical outlet wherein I am surrounded by fellow survivors and others who have been affected by breast cancer. These people GET me! Even if we don't get a chance to talk much or get to know each other on a deep level, we still connect because we have walked a similar path. We are fighters and we are persevering one day at a time. Music is a universal language that allows us to communicate our deepest fears, hopes and dreams. I'm so grateful for Melinda - that she had this vision and followed through on it, and for Wilbert, who puts in countless hours to teach us music and make us better singers. I'm so glad I found this choir, because trust me, it's not just a choir. This choir is a community."
