If you were at Sunday's Komen Evansville Tri-State More Than Pink Walk, you probably saw the #WARRIORJENNIFER team. Shawn King lost his wife, Jennifer, to Metastatic breast cancer earlier this year. We invited him in to our studio, to help spread awareness about Metastatic breast cancer, and to share Jennifer's mission. Their son, Dylan (DDK) is a very talented musician, and was extremely close to his mom. Dylan wrote a song, to honor her. We were excited to have him debut in on MY 105.3! DDK, along with Landon Vanbibber, performed 'Dear Momma' in front of the huge crowd at the More Than Pink Walk. Here is the video, that his dad, Shawn, sent us:

He says they are converting a room in their house into a recording studio, and DDK is working on a music video. We can't wait to hear more from this talented teen!

Studio Version 'Dear Momma' Radio Edit

Metastatic breast cancer (also called stage IV or advanced breast cancer) is not a specific type of breast cancer. It's the most advanced stage of breast cancer.

Metastatic breast cancer is breast cancer that has spread beyond the breast and nearby lymph nodes to other organs in the body (most often the bones, lungs, liver or brain).

Although metastatic breast cancer has spread to another part of the body, it’s still breast cancer and treated as breast cancer.

For example, breast cancer that has spread to the bones is still breast cancer (not bone cancer). It may also be called metastatic breast cancer in the bones or bone metastases. It’s not the same as cancer that starts in the bone. It’s breast cancer cells that have invaded the bones. So, it's treated with breast cancer drugs, rather than treatments for cancer that began in the bones.
