You plan to go to see your favorite band or musician live in concert for weeks, sometimes months. We got the tickets months in advance and counted down the days until the big show. What could be worse than getting sick and not being able to go?
Well, after this brave and courageous lady who attended a Garth Brooks concert at the Target Center in Minneapolis, people may think twice if they’re struggling with a cold or feeling a little under the weather. Theresa Shaw is battling stage 3 breast cancer and attended the show in the Target Center despite undergoing a round of chemotherapy earlier in the day.
Garth himself, noticed a sign Theresa was holding which read “Chemo this morning, Garth tonight enjoying the dance”. So when he started performing his hit song “The Dance”, Brooks walked over and began singing to Shaw. The entire audience was brought to tears by his beautiful performance. When the song was over, Brooks handed her his guitar, kissed her forehead and held up her sign.
It’s almost impossible not to get emotional during this amazing video. What makes this story even better is that after she was given the all clear she attended another one of his concerts and took a sign that read “I kicked cancer’s ass. Still enjoying the dance!”
