Cancer Survivor Playlist #5

Bob Marley - Survival

My Cancer Survivor Playlist would not be complete without at least one Bob Marley & the Wailers tune. He sang this song about survival, especially Black survivors. (He truly is the voice for oppressed peoples the world over and is often called "The Ambassador of the Third World.") Although Bob Marley died after his battle with cancer (acral lentiginous melanoma, a form of malignant melanoma) at the young age of 36, I could imagine he did not go down without a fight. I feel inspired by his music to continue to fight for my survival, well-being, health, and happiness.
