The girls tipped me off that Taylor Swift debuted a heart-wrenching song tonight at the “Stand Up to Cancer” telethon.

Taylor wrote the song to honor a beautiful little boy named Ronan, 4, who died of  neuroblastoma. Swift co-wrote the song with the little boy’s mother, Maya Thompson, after reading her blog.  All proceeds from the song will be donated to cancer charities via the Taylor Swift Charitable Fund.  The song is available for download on iTunes.

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.  What are you doing to stop the brutal reality of childhood cancer?   Creative challenge: find a way to make a difference in the war on childhood cancer.  I believe tiny individual steps collectively make a difference.
