Cyndi Lauper & Sara Bareilles mashup "Truly Brave" for American Cancer Society

TODAY’s Hoda Kotb teamed up with Cyndi Lauper and Sara Bareilles, who mashed up their hits 'True Colors' and 'Brave' to create a song to raise money for the fight against pediatric cancer.

At this writing over $285,000 has been raised - keep it going.

Check out Hoda's fundraising page and if you can, please donate. All proceeds will go to grants for pediatric cancer research via the American Cancer Society.

If not able to donate (times can be tough, trust me I know), go visit some kids in the hospital and incite some fun.

The music video for “Truly Brave” features young cancer patients from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

You haven't seen 'brave' until you've seen kids kick cancer's ass. Regular readers know about my personal cancer journey in 2009, which is why this touches my heart so powerfully.

So, since the kids here are doing the bald thing, let's call this a "Throwback Tuesday" thing. Check the last pic, my bald 2009 self with "Bumpy the Chemo Pump." Although, I gotta say the kids in this music video have a whole lot more spirit than I did. They rock.
