"Hold on. Be strong. Can you feel it getting better?"
These words are the chorus of the original song "Hold On, " written and performed by Greg Lizee, Ph.D., associate professor in MD Anderson's Melanoma Medical Oncology department. The song's message is simple: Hope. It's about positivity, patience and faith -- faith that things will get better. You have to hold on through the bad times to reach the good.
