In September 2017, after 2 years clear, her oncologist found a small lump in her neck. When a needle biopsy came back testing positive, she was disheartened.
How can this happen?
Sam took out a yellow legal pad and wrote down the lyrics for I’m Gonna Fly to help and encourage his wife through the next round of the fight with the demon.
Music therapy once again.
The duo have been tweaking these tunes ever since. Playing them for live audiences, rewriting and fine-tuning, adding voices and and instruments, recording and re-recording. Sam is also the audio engineer. Agonizing over all of the production details. :)

Then—- Covid 19 hit us all.
Terrifying and trying our lives. Kind of like the cancer demon.
Now, we’re crawling back to normal. It leaves an impression. It reshapes our priorities.
We're gonna fly.

Lyrics

I’m Gonna Fly

It seems I’m walkin’ this old road again
You’d think by now I’d know these bumps and bends
Battle’s been waged
The dogs untethered
With youthful rage
The storm will be weathered
When stars get shattered, scattered across the sky
I’m gonna fly
I’m just gonna fly


Endless river, time keeps rollin’ on
Before you know it all that’s here is gone
I’ve made my choice
Took that chance
With strength of conviction
Or blind ignorance
I’m stuck on believin’ this feeling that just won’t die
I’m gonna fly
I’m just gonna fly

I’ve made my choice
Took that chance
When stars get shattered, scattered across the sky
I’m gonna fly
I’m just gonna fly

Before you know it all that's here is gone...” - Sam Patterelli
