‘You’ll never be alone, we promise you’: Fifth grade choir serenades a teacher who is suffering from breast cancer and reduces her to tears with their touching performance.

Despite surgery and then grueling chemotherapy treatments, she continued to pour her heart into her work and her fourth-grade class. A New York public school teacher who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer got an amazing surprise when she was serenaded by the school’s fifth grade chorus.A cancer-stricken elementary school teacher received an emotional musical tribute of support from her students when the choir at her Staten Island school surprised her with an angelic rendition of Martina McBride’s “I’m Gonna Love You Through It.” Adriana Lopez, 48, was left in tears when the students, under the direction of PS22’s choir director Gregg Breinberg, began the song as she walked into the auditorium at Breinberg’s request on June 25. Mr Breinberg told Inside Edition that the popular teacher – who is only in her first year teaching at the school – is halfway through chemo and will soon be starting radiation. ‘Martina McBride’s song has become something of an anthem for the fight against breast cancer. The group of talented young singers, under the directon of Gregg Breinberg, prepared a special song for teacher Adriana Lopez, who has been going through a tough time. “This song was suggested by Ms.

She wept openly, repeatedly wiping away her tears with tissues. “I just felt so supported and from all these little kids, who don’t know what cancer really is,” she told “Just for them to be there singing this powerful song, it was an overwhelming feeling. Lisa for our dedication to this strong and inspiring woman, and it’s hard to imagine a more perfect selection,” the caption beneath the YouTube video reads. I just couldn’t stop crying.” Although the presentation took place more than a month ago, Breinberg posted a video of it Tuesday on the Youtube page for PS22 chorus. Country singer Martina McBride released the song, which is about a 38-year-old woman who is supported by her husband while battling breast cancer, in 2011. The devastation of that news and going through the treatments you have to live through it to understand. “She would laugh off the pain she is going through.

Within its first day, the video racked up more than 200,000 views and dozens of comments reflecting emotions identical to the ones expressed by Lopez. She is one of the newest members to our family at PS22 but is one of the most beloved.” “ As I was walking down and Gregg started smiling, and said he had a very special treat from the children. Yet, Breinberg said he didn’t anticipate the kind of response his newest video has received. “It was kind of a personal thing that we did, for us and for her.

There’s always something new or a new reaction, but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, so just keep crossings those days off on the calendar until you reach your end.”
