In Honor of Ruth McGinnis

Posted on: October 6th, 2010 by Derek 8 Comments

Today, in honor of Amy’s dear friend Ruth McGinnis who lost her battle with cancer a year ago today, we would ask you all to consider visiting the @shecolorsmyday website and download Amy’s song in honor of your own mother, daughter, sister or best friend. Too many women are dying from cancer — but there is hope — and we believe some day there will be a cure.

    I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Ruth personally, but along with many Amy fans, I was introduced to her music and felt a connection right away. Over the years I’ve listened to Ruth’s magnificent music and read and reread her books many times. The world lost a beautiful person…….my prayer is that we find a cure soon! Thank you Ruth for giving us so much! Thank you Amy for for sharing Ruth with us!

    My heart prayers go out to you Amy, I know how you miss her so. My heart and prayers go out to Ruth’s family and friends, and to the many many who have lost or are currently experiencing the myriad of feelings that go in dealing with this disease and how it takes the breath away from those we love.. To those who currently have this disease, my heart goes out to you and I will be praying as always for healing……….. for a cure.

    I lost my sister-in-law in Jan. 2008. She passed in my arms. Our spirits are still connected and it gives me tremendous peace knowing this. I have a friend now with breast cancer and is going in for the removal of her bladder due to cancer next Monday. Please pray for her…….. her name is Jeanne.

    God be with you all, Deb
