Young Singer Songwriter Gives Back After Surviving Cancer (Caly On The Good - E1)
"I was so insecure about my body. I was a skinny, scrawny girl with a bald head and dark bags under my eyes."
At 15, this was the hole that Caly Bevier found herself in. The Chemo treatments for her ovarian cancer took away her energy, mobility, and appetite. But despite the fear from a diagnosis that gave her only a 67% chance of survival, her fighting spirit propelled her forward. She faced down the weeks of Chemo until her cancer was in remission and vowed to get her life back.
The road was long and uphill but get it back she did…and how. Soon after returning to High School in Grand Rapids, Ohio, a Facebook Post her Dad made of her singing "Fight Song" at a benefit for a fellow patient propelled her to a spot on the Ellen show. That in turn led to an audition for America's Got Talent and an amazing moment where Simon Cowell himself hit the Golden Buzzer to propel her forward.
With her love of music as a compass, Caly signed with Primary Wave, a music publishing and talent management company, and moved by herself to LA. She's now spending her days in the studio with some of the industry's top producers and writers crafting her first batch of original material. Her growing fan army, known as Team Caly are supporting her along the way. "I can't believe I'm making music, I never thought I would be able to do that. I'm definitely living a dream come true."
Caly is using her new found platform to make a difference for others who are battling this disease, most recently with the organization Stupidcancer, which specifically focuses on support for young adults. "No matter what happens with music, I will always fight for people who have cancer." Listen closely… she knows a thing or two about fighting back.
