Gershman

We are not givin' up our - - fight!
No, we're not givin' up our - - fight!
Eric's the leader of our family
He's loving - provides our canopy
And we're not givin' up our - - fight!

We are partners.
Life friends. Love transcends.
Not gonna brag,
but dag,
lemme tell you a quick
beginning to end.

Best friend to husband - what a trend!
my roommate,
a high school teacher. No debate!
My co-worker,
healthy livin' believer,
a cook,
Hey - look.

Here's a daddy,
a gardener,
a marathon runner,

A camper,
vinyl collector,
a confidant - even better...

A role-model to all
his students, his children, his family...
Role Call!!

                          A-N
                       we aim
                            to 
                          E-R
                          A-D
                    I (and I)

                          T-E
And man, let the world see!!!

That:
We are not givin' up our - fight!
(our fight!)
No, we're not givin' up our - fight!
(our fight!)
Eric's the leader of our family
He's loving - provides our canopy
And we're not givin' up our - fight! 

YO! Now he has another role.
Now he's a patient.
And what's the goal?
Every bump, every disadvantage
We will need help to manage
These cells are damaged
And we want them banished.

We are his caregivers.
His researchers. Therapists. Guides.
His nutritionists, entertainers - we will not abide.
story-tellers, go-getters... we are his advocates. And. That's. NOT. It!!

Driving, record keeping, bill collecting
check writing
Did you take your - medicine, supplements, herbs, tinctures - 
Please help us continue the fighting!

Multiple Myeloma is the disease...these cells
These cells must ease
up! Take a step back! 
Let Gershman show 'em who's boss!
Show 'em wassup and take guard - 
for the attack!

Blood cancer, bone marrow, immune deficient
Straight and narrow
blood pressure calm
kidney disease at bay
One big one to handle, light a candle
This one - we're going all the way.

Cause:
We are not givin' up our - fight!
(our fight!)
No, we're not givin' up our - fight!
(our fight!)
Eric's the leader of our family
He's loving - provides our canopy
And we're not givin' up our - fight! 

We've got treatment expense after expense
co-pay and co-pay and co-pay - day by day!!
It doesn't make any sense
Hence,
(and it is intense)
this:

We're gearing up for a stem cell transplant
isolation 
this realization
of a long-term hospital stay
it's got us - well, a bit cray-cray.
We're asking for help along the way.
And maybe a person (or two) to pray.

Cause - We're not giving up our fight!!
                                   That's right!
                 We are not giving up our - fight!
                                  That's right!
                 Eric's the leader of our family
              He's loving - provides our canopy
            And we're
                              not
                                   giving
                                            up
                                        :: our ::
                                               .
               
                                      ::  fight ::
                                               .
                                               .
                                               .
                                               .
                                               . 
     


*** In all seriousness, this is not an easy thing to do.  And never in a million years did we ever think that we would be in this situation.  We thought we  could handle this one, but are now starting to see the medical bills roll in - even with the copays, the debt is starting to build. And we haven't even gotten to the pivotal turning point of Eric's treatments.      

Anything helps. Please share within your community. We appreciate anything that anyone is capable of doing. Thank you so much.
Love and light,
The Gershman Family
