The video shows 4-year-old McKenna singing the country song, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” by country singer Martina McBride. McKenna, dressed in pink t-shirt with matching pink bow sang the song to her mother as a surprise. McKenna’s mother was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer that affects the lymphatic system, which is part of your immune system.
Because of her mother’s recent diagnosis, the song had a special meaning and had her mother in tears.
After the video was posted, it prompted tons of positive feedback, others affected by cancer sharing their personal stories and struggles. The comments were full of words of encouragement and prayer.
