Breast Cancer Survivor Parody of – I Will Survive My friend, Kira, was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and has undergone chemo and surgery. In fact, she was still recovering from surgery when she performed this song at a Greater Harmony Chorus retreat talent show. She is wearing a wig because her hair is still growing in. She shows amazing resilience and energy for someone who has been through what she has. Update: Kira passed away on Sept 30, 2016 at 1130 am in the arms of her husband, Keith Heston, and her family at her bedside surrounded in love.
