Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) is pleased to announce that singer/songwriter and PanCAN Influencer of Hope, Erin Willett released a new single, “Hope’s Alive,” dedicated to everyone fighting pancreatic cancer.
“Hope’s Alive” is an anthem of empowerment for all those who are battling the disease and those who have passed away from it. The song includes a chorus featuring two dozen pancreatic cancer survivors and caregivers.
Willett and fellow songwriters Elizabeth Russo and Tova Litvin will donate 100 percent of proceeds up to $1 million to PanCAN’s efforts.
Russo, who spearheaded the project, is caring for her father as he fights the disease, and Litvin’s mother is a five-year survivor. Willett, who was a semifinalist on NBC’s “The Voice,” and who also appeared on that network’s reality show, “The Biggest Loser,” lost her father to pancreatic cancer in 2011.
“The song connects with our experience as caregivers, as family members, as people who might not have personally been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, but feel that diagnosis just the same. I’m excited to share it with the pancreatic cancer community,” Willett said in a recent interview.
