Olivia Wise’s Last Song

It was all over the news. A teenage girl, dying of inoperable brain cancer, recorded a cover of Katy Perry’s “Roar”. After it went viral Katy Perry, herself, responded with a video message.  We all were so touched by Olivia’s sweet voice. We loved that Katy reached out ……. and then we were all devastated when it was reported that Olivia was gone. Lovely that Katy tweeted about her sorrow at hearing the news. The simple truth about this Simple Girl is Olivia died because of the lack of childhood cancer research. Nothing could be done for her. Her doctors knew her cancer was inoperable from the beginning.

Just days before she died Olivia’s parents posted this video of the song Olivia wrote. I was stunned at the haunting beauty of Olivia’s voice and words. Please listen…..then pass it on. This is the song Katy Perry and the rest of the world need to hear. When you are done listening to Olivia’s last song ask yourself this: How many beautiful children have to die before childhood cancer research becomes a priority?

Please donate to the Liv Wise Fund in Olivia’s name to support research into childhood brain cancer.
