Eddie Money "Shakin'":

The artist said that although the diagnosis hit him hard, he had been able to recover and face it as positively as possible: "I want people to know that cancer has advanced a lot and that not everyone dies of cancer as happened in the '50s and '60s. Am I going to live long? Who knows, it's in God's hands. But you know what? I'm going to make the most of as many days as I can. Every day on Earth is a good day.
