This Cancer Patient Hosted an Inspiring Chemotherapy Jam Session


In stressful situations, you have to do what makes you happy. That’s exactly what David Chavez did.

Chavez, in the video below, is undergoing chemotherapy for non-Hodgkin lymphoma, according to Right This Minute. He decided to mix a little inspiration into his treatment by inviting some of his friends to have a jam session during chemo.

Chavez, his wife and two of his friends played “Chan Chan” by Buena Vista Social Club while a nurse filmed.

“If we can inspire at least one person to just kind of feel happy and be like ‘Yeah, I’m going to get through this,”’ Chavez told the outlet, “then we did our job.”

Check out the inspirational jam session in the video below:
