Adriana Lopez is a teacher at Public School 22 (PS22) in Staten Island, New York, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, BuzzFeed reported. The PS22 chorus decided to dedicate a touching performance to Lopez in honor of her diagnosis.

They performed a moving rendition of Martina McBride’s song about cancer, “I’m Gonna Love You Through It.”
