The song "Ronan" was written about a little boy who died from cancer and was first performed live by Taylor Swift at Stand Up To Cancer in 2012. This charity single helped raise awareness for childhood cancer and was co-written by Maya Thompson, the mother of Ronan.
Swift and Thompson became friends after reading her blog Rockstar Ronan. This blog was created by Thompson to chronicle her son's journey with neuroblastoma and the resulting death. The blog also helps raise money and awareness for childhood cancer charities.
When SurvivorNet reached out to Thompson about her blog, she told us that she has never forgotten Ronan and that the loss of her son has not come easily. She said that she had to deal with the pain for years, but therapy has given her hope.
She said that she still writes to Ronan on her blog and tries to help other parents dealing with the same grief. She also shared that she is happy that Taylor Swift wrote a song about her son because she feels like it helps her through the pain.
The story behind the song is so heartbreaking and it shows how important it is for people to have a voice for children's cancer. It's also amazing that Taylor Swift took the time to write this song and it is a powerful song.
The song is a powerful ballad and it really shows how important it is for people to have their own voices and how much we can learn from others. This song is so beautiful and it makes you think of your loved ones.
