A dying mother has written a song for her son and ended up topping the charts.
31-year-old Cat Janice noticed a lump on her neck in 2021, that doctors diagnosed as sarcoma, a rare type of tumour that collects within the bone and tissue.
Cat was declared cancer-free after undergoing treatment, but the cancer sadly returned in June 2023, this time in her lungs.
One of the ways in which Cat coped with the diagnosis is through music, and as a passionate musician she continued working, producing and creating songs despite being ill.
In a video she valiantly shared to social media after finding out about her most recent diagnosis, she said: "I'm going to go back into treatment. I'm going to be really effing strong about it and I'm going to let you guys know what's going on. And thank you guys so much for loving me."
The mother then posted an update to her health back in January to her followers: "The tumours basically tripled overnight.” She entered a hospice on January 10 2024, as PEOPLE reported that she could not breathe on her own.
She told the publication that she’s signed her entire discography over to her son, and added that she wanted to release ‘one final track.’
The final track became ‘Dance Outta My Head’, which she said randomly came to mind while her and her son were driving around together.
She told the publication: “We came up with some fun lyrics and a little ditty, I song banked it and made a little voice note of it and as time went on we would bounce around in the car to it every now and then."
The musician then woke up to a shock when fixing the beep of her medical support machine, she decided to check her phone and seen that iTunes had tagged her, letting her know that her song had charted.
She said: “I was sitting there in the middle of the night looking at my phone. What the heck is going on here. I started yelling and my parents came down, they were like, what is going on?"
Janice then realised that she had reached number 11 on the Hot Dance/Electronic billboard.
The musician became emotional online after seeing the song that started with her and her son had charted. She posted to her page, ‘YOU DID THIS!’
"You all loved me so hard and gave me that moment and I am forever grateful. Whatever God brings my way I know I am loved.”
