A husband wrote a beautiful song as a tribute to his wife after his wife’s fighting spirit and faith in God inspired him.
In October 2019, Grayson Rogers’ wife Kayla was diagnosed with breast cancer. The news came to the couple while his military wife was in the Navy serving the country. Grayson did his best to be there for his wife during this trying time.
“There’s not many words you can say in that kind of situation to make it better or comfort someone. So, I made it a point to just be there for whatever she needed from me,” Grayson said.
Kayla had several surgeries and chemotherapy treatments. But she never stopped fighting for her goal to be a Chief Petty Officer of the Navy. Just before going to her surgery, Grayson wrote a beautiful song for his wife.
“We wanted it to be an anthem for people going through anything tough in their life. It’s been really great to see the reaction of the song and the video from other breast cancer survivors”‘ he said.
Faith in God
Despite battling for her life, Kayla still continued to serve her country. She just relied on her faith in God and placed every single detail into the Lord’s hands.
“I was really, really sick. But I would say, ‘I’m going to go a little bit longer and a little bit faster.’ That’s where the words to ‘Fighters’ was really my anthem because those are the words in the bridge. I wanted to just push myself and focus on that one positive thing. That is a game-changer,” she commented.
With God’s blessing, Kayla passed the exam for her Chief Petty Officer. While she was fighting against cancer, she got promoted!
“This year has been a tough one on her, but she never stopped fighting. She always relied on her faith — she never gave up. She is a true FIGHTER. Congratulations, Chief Select. I’m proud of you and I love you!”
