For those of you who need some inspiration. This link takes you to a segment of America's Got Talent where a beautiful 30 year old woman sings her own song about her MBC journey over the last 12 months. The song, her voice, and her attitude is truly beautiful and inspiring (although a little bit sad).

    Thank you, @Lisa1407 for sharing that beautiful performance as I'd not seen it or indeed had not heard of 'Nightbirde'.

    What an amazing lady.  So calm and obviously deeply religious.  I found the family's obituary:
    https://www.nbc4i.com/news/local-news/family-releases-obituary-for-jane-nightbirde-merczewski/

    It is a cruel world.  We often say "why someone so beautiful when these bad people go through life with no real worries".

    RIP beautiful Nightbirde.

    RIP to this beautiful lady. Such an amazing tale she had and she fought the good fight. Cancer really is a tough gig.

    May Jane RIP, taken too young, and now in God's loving care.  

    Thank you @Lisa1407 for picking up on the thread, and I had heard Nightbirde had passed, so young, such a beautiful soul.

    HI @June1952,
    thank you for that link, I read what had been written, again what an amazing young woman and so many lives that she touched, as I said before I can only say WHY, having metastatic breast cancer myself,there are just so many questions and just so few answers,all I can do is to take inspiration from Janes life and apply it to my own especially when I am having a bad day.
