She dropped the phone and burst into tears
The doctor just conformed her fears
Her husband held it and held her tight
Cancer don't discriminate or care if you're just 38
With three kids who need her in their lives
He said, "I know that you're afraid and I am, too
But you'll never be alone, I promise you"

When you're weak, I'll be strong
When you let go, I'll hold on
When you need to cry, I swear that I'll be there to dry your eyes
When you feel lost and scared to death,
Like you can't take one more breath
Just take my hand, together we can do this
I'm gonna love you through it.

She made it through the surgery fine
They said they cut her just in time
But they had to take more than they planned
Now it's forced smiles and baggy shirts
To hide what cancer took from her
But she just wants to feel like a woman again
She said, " I don't think I can do this anymore"
He took her in his arms and said "that's what my love is for"


And when the road gets too long
Just take my hand, together we can do it
I'm gonna love you through it.
I'm gonna love you through it.

I'm gonna love you through it.

    The strength it takes to survive cancer and having my "rock" (my wife) get me through it. She's amazing and gave me the ability to get through it with grace. God bless her and i will love her forever.

    It is about cancer and talking about how it is living with it. This song reaches out and makes you cry. The vidio to this is really sweet :)

    That just because something is hard that doesn't mean that here will not be someone there to help you through it
