Cancer survivors spoof Thrift Shop

Chemo Shop (A Thrift Shop Parody)

A Thrift Shop parody. Cancer survivors, doctors and staff of Oncology Associates rap about getting through cancer treatment and finding a cure for cancer. Visit

We made this video to show that there is a lighter side to cancer, especially in the chemotherapy room, where many cancer patients develop friendships with other patients, sharing jokes, encouragement, stories and anecdotes.

I’m gonna cure some cancer
got lots of education
the nurses are helping
we’re treating
this is super awesome

Now I walk into the clinic like whats up I’m the cancer doc
I’m so pumped to be here at the treatment shop
Eyes on the syringe its so dang long
People like “dang, that chemo’s strong”

Rollin up vroom vroom headed to the chemo room
Dressed in all pink except my comfy shoes those are cool
Draped in a heated blanket buddy sitting next to me
Hey how you doing can’t let cancer get to me

Popa, Lemon, Constantino

Rockin it lovin it about to go and get some coffee
Triple tall cappuccino what you know about me
Sitting in my office medical journals around me
Walk into the lobby nothing but soaps on the tv

What you know about rockin a wig on your noggin?
What you know about wearing a port all plugged in?
I’m living I’m living surviving through Herceptin
One person’s struggle is another person’s strength

Hold up wait up time to fill this verse up
Has anybody seen my triple tall cappuccino cup?
Thank you volunteer for the bone marrow yesterday
Because its going to help us save a life today

I’m running running running every year at the relay
You can find me chilling with the OA


I’m drinking my coffee
My hair is incredible
I’m in this white lab coat
From the med shop down the road

I’m taking my chemo
I look incredible
I’m sporting this sweet wig
From the beauty shop down the road

I wear these sexy scrubs
I feel incredible
My hair is natural
From the barber down the road

We just killed some cells (nasty)
Got plenty of good ones left
We just killed some cancer
This is super awesome

Lights out cancer!
