A Poem For Gord Downie

I know that this summer the news came out that Gord Downie has terminal brain cancer. But like always, Canada has a way to fight through emotional and sad things like this one. As you may know, Gord Downie’s wife Laura just suffered from breast cancer and survived. She and Gord have courage.

So now I am going to say a little speech dedicated to all the people that care and who donate to cancer.

A Poem For Gord

sometimes when I wake up I look up at my

ceiling and I pray for those people who have to

suffer through painful cancer. I pray that every

second someone donates to cancer. Most people

deserve to have a long lasting life and not to

suffer from cancer. So hearing this, I pray

that this poem can change something in this world.
