Lyric video for the song "Battle Cries." Performed by Yearbook Committee (http://www.yearbookcommittee.org) from the album "This Is the Winter." Songwriting and video production by Christina Blust (http://www.christinablust.com).

This video is in memory of my sister, Vanessa Blust Tiemeier, who was initially diagnosed with breast cancer at age twenty-six. As the cancer progressed, it metastasized to her organs, bones and brain. She died on February 23, 2014. She was thirty-two. You can learn more about Vanessa's story at http://www.thelivesincerelyproject.com.

I wrote "Battle Cries" when we learned the cancer had spread to the brain. Brain mets (as this is known) is a particularly cruel trick of an already awful cancer, as it can cause significant cognitive changes and make an already very hard thing even harder.
