CoT: QIC related the following tale of “Nightbirde” Jane Marczewski
She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017, and declared cancer-free in July 2018. Her cancer recurred in 2019, and she was given 3 to 6 months to live, but she was again declared cancer-free in 2020. Prior to the America’s Got Talent audition, she was told that the cancer had metastasized to her lungs, spine, and liver and her chance of survival was 2%.
In June 2021, she performed as Nightbirde during the 16th season auditions on America’s Got Talent. She received a Golden Buzzer from Simon Cowell for her performance of her original song “It’s OK”. The song became No. 1 on iTunes and No. 2 trending on YouTube.
In August 2021, before she could compete in the show’s quarterfinal round, Marczewski withdrew from the competition because of worsening health. On February 19, 2022, “Nightbirde” Jane Marczewski died.
“You cannot wait until life stops being hard until you decide to be happy.” – “Nightbirde” Jane Marczewski
So, what would you do if you had a 2% chance to live? Nightbirde chose to appear on America’s Got Talent, but you may have some other dream to pursue. How would you treat those in your life? What would you do differently?
