All of us have been affected in some way by cancer — our furry little friends included.
A new music video released by New York rock band The Commuters is bringing attention to the cancer fight, and how we can win it.
The sweet video stars two adorable dogs named Max and Bella and is being released in partnership with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. All proceeds from the sale of the single featured in the video, “You’ll Stay Right Here,” are being donated to the organization.
In the video, the canine couple face a frightening diagnosis and vow that, together, they will beat it. The ballad was written by lead singer Zeeshan Zaidi after he found out a loved one was diagnosed with Lymphoma. As a band they decided to donate proceeds from sales of the track to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to raise awareness and fund research.
“It was my way of saying ‘I’m with you,’ ” Zaidi told Vents Magazine, “and you’re going to beat this.”
We won’t spoil the ending of the story in the video, but we hope the phrase which appears in the closing credits will stick with you as it has with us: “Cancer can be defeated.”
