Pamela Mary was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2016. She is no stranger to the roller coaster ride of health struggles: this diagnosis came only two years after a surgery declared her cancer-free. She addressed her physical, mental, emotional, financial, and relational battles by writing “Take Down a Giant”, based on the story of David and Goliath. It’s a song about finding strength, courage, and hope while fighting challenges.
Pamela Mary released the song in 2021 and her fans were so blown away by “Take Down a Giant” that it was nominated as a Texas Country Music Association top five finalist for Christian Country Single of the Year.
Many fans related to her message of hope, and the single was a hit. One of those fans, a family member of a little girl, Maelynn, reached out to her. Maelynn is currently 8 years old battling a rare form of childhood cancer. Her family was so deeply touched by “Take Down a Giant” that it became their fight song. They asked if Pamela Mary would perform at a fundraiser and she was thrilled to do so. The event raised over $20,000 to help pay for Maelynn’s medical bills.
But while Maelynn and her family found strength through Pamela Mary’s music, Pamela Mary also found inspiration in Maelynn’s story.
“’Take Down a Giant,’ about my battle with MS and the ensuing relational struggles, is my song that means the most to me as a human. But this song, ‘Teaching Us to Live,’ about a little girl battling a rare form of cancer, is the song that means the most to my heart. I would give anything to have to battle my MS plus her cancer if I could take it away from her.”
Maelynn touched Pamela Mary’s heart, as she sings of the gift that Maelynn is:
Everyday you teach us to live
In a world that don’t always make perfect sense
Giving more than you should have to give
With your heart of gold and a spirit that won’t quit
God’s beautiful perfect gift, Teaching Us to Live
