The charming other side of this talented couple, Kelly Lang is also a dynamo in her own right and with a story that has to touch your heart. Fifteen years ago, Kelly Lang had a dear friend who was a caretaker for a cancer patient and Kelly began writing a song, “I’m Not Going Anywhere.” Little did she know that shortly after, she would begin her own battle for her life after being diagnosed with breast cancer and being given very little hope.
Kelly Lang's song "I'm Not Going Anywhere" was picked up recently by Ascension Hospitals for a national ad campaign. Since then “I’m Not Going Anywhere” has soared in streams/sales going from virtually no activity to thousands. After thousands of “Shazam” hits and Google alerts, this song has taken on a life of its own offering hope and comfort to millions in need right now.
Instead of looking at her diagnosis as a death sentence, Kelly looked at it as a life sentence and began living every day to its fullest, remaining positive and knowing she could beat this horrific disease. Now, fifteen years later, Kelly remains a champion for cancer survivors across the board and often helps with advice, encouragement and hope to many behind the scenes that no one will ever know about. Also, Lang brings her fans annually with her as she goes down the scary path of a mammogram and assures everyone that early detection is the key and to not be scared. A 15-year breast cancer survivor, Lang lives each day with great enthusiasm and appreciation for life.
As for this dynamic couple T. G. Sheppard adds, “As long as I’ve got Kelly and my family by my side, I’m in paradise, but picturing all of us heading down to Mexico for Christmas is like looking into a little slice of heaven.”
