The world doesn’t stop when we’re diagnosed with cancer. It’s an unfortunate part of life, but at a time when more and more people are facing chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, and months or years of healing, the idea of going on and living life can seem like an impossible task. But for one woman, not only was it not impossible, but she decided to continue doing exactly what she loved.
“Chemo this morning, Garth tonight, enjoying the dance.” That’s what was on the sign that made Garth Brooks stop his show mid-song during a recent concert.
When Theresa Shaw held up her sign, she did it to show the world she was a fighter, and that she wouldn’t let cancer, or chemo, or anything else keep her from living her life. She never expected Garth Brooks would not only see her sign, but stop singing, and sit at the edge of the stage with her. She never expected the world to see her sign, or to have so many people touched by her courageous battle and the reminder that nothing should stop us from living. Take a look!
