On Nov. 11, 2017, Kids Rock Cancer lost longtime rockstar Arianna Rose Dougan.
To the family of Arianna Dougan, we send you ongoing love and support from the entire Maryville University and Kids Rock Cancer family, as Ari has left a profound impact on all of us. To our little rock star … your smile, spirit and songs will forever play in our hearts.
“Fly like a fairy”… and fly high.
But Today, We Sing
Yesterday, we remembered the days that have passed
We remembered wanting to make each moment last
And yesterday, we may have cried and longed for you here
We may have wished for better days to be near
But today feels different and the sun is shining true
We can see a rainbow through cloudy skies and storms of blue
Today we play beautiful melodies in memory of you
And allow the music to help heal us too
It’s okay to be sad; it’s okay to be weak
It’s even okay to feel some defeat
But today we sing, today we sing
We rejoice, and sing out strong
Today, in honor of you
We make music all day long
— Dedicated to all of our Kids Rock Cancer rock stars who have passed. Your voices and songs live on.
