Woman Survives Cancer And Writes Touching “Rap Song” For The Dog That Helped Her


Music takes on many different forms, and rap is one of them. Love it or not, that style of music is here to stay and it just keeps growing in popularity.


Perhaps that is why so many people tune in to hear “Mac Lethal” and his show on KRBZ in Kansas City, Missouri. He has an audience that looks forward to hearing him because he takes lyrics sent in from fans and raps them for his audience.

Darcy is one of his listeners who doesn’t care much for rap music but she never misses a show. She also sent a poem to the radio station and when you read it and hear it for yourself, it’s almost impossible not to cry.

Darcy wrote the poem about something that was near and dear to her. It all started when she was diagnosed with bone cancer. In order to lift her spirits and help Darcy, her husband brought home Muffins.


No, I’m not talking about the type of muffins that taste good, he brought her home a puppy and she named him Muffins. Throughout her ordeal and dealing with cancer, Muffins was there by her side.

Darcy is so happy with what that dog did for her that she swears he made her better. At one point, however, things took a turn and it made her realize how much that pup meant to her.

Mac admits that he was moved to tears by the lyrics, which read:

My name is Darcy and I’d like to tell my story
about my best friend who’s in another category
see I was always happy, I took care of myself
I enjoyed life, I always stayed in good health,
When I was 52, my telephone rang
My doctor told me the results from my biopsy came,
he sounded so upset, hurt by his tone,
he told me I had cancer in my bones
I was in shock. I was out of breath.
Up until this moment I was never scared of death.
but when you find out, you have cancer
it’s like the grim reaper rings your doorbell and waits for you to answer
When I was going through chemotherapy
My husband walked in with a gift just for me
It was a puppy. Instantly I loved him.
My sweetest baby boy. I named him Muffins.

From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
You’re my best friend.

My medication used to keep me up at night
I felt so weak didn’t have the strength to fight
Muffins could feel it, he understood my plight
And he radiated energy that made me feel alright
At times I swore death was coming soon, it’s what I feared,
I’d snuggle Muffins and quietly let out my tears,
I’d tell him you are such a precious little doggy
I felt him pull the sickness out of my body
He took away my pain. He took away my tears.

I finally got the phone call after a couple years
My doctor said I have some great news,
I’m about to wipe away your pain and your blues,
I want you to sit down and listen
Your cancer has gone into remission!
I cried tears of joy.
I felt like I could live forever.
I swear the love from my sweet puppy made me better.

From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
You’re my best friend.

Not even 9 months later
Muffins started showing strange behavior
we wouldn’t eat, he wouldn’t play, he wouldn’t move
this wasn’t my baby, he wasn’t in his best mood
His heart beat sounded frantic in his chest
We took him to the vet and ran some tests

The Vet didn’t call me back for 2 weeks
but when he called me I simply couldn’t speak
I remember when the telephone rang
I remember being crushed by the pain
he sounded so upset, hurt by his tone
he told me that Muffins that his cancer in his bones
it shocked me, broke the heart inside my ribs
it’s the cancer left my body and entered his.
within a year, my baby boy was gone
I hope I can him alive forever with this song.

From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
From the beginning. I knew I’d love you until the end.
You’re my best friend.
