As the lyrics of the song “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” by Martina McBride go, cancer doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t pick an age, profession, or gender.
Mrs Adriana Lopez, fourth grade teacher in PS22 in Graniteville, New York, wasn’t exempt. She began the fight of her life against breast cancer in 2015.
At the time of her diagnosis, Mrs Lopez was a new teacher at PS22 who instantly connected with everyone. She shared her warmth, creativity and joyful smile with all she came across.
Battling with cancer is never easy, but praise God for sending people that surround us with the warmth of their comforting presence. Mrs Lopez found loving friends and students who were there for her during these tough times of her life.
In this video, you will see students singing from their soul! In their hand movements, facial expressions and swaying back and forth it is obvious they love this teacher because they sing this song with everything in them.
Mr B choral director for PS 22, shares that after dozens of treatments, with the comfort and support of family and friends by her side, Mrs Lopez is currently cancer free!
