Hyperdrive For Cancer Awareness

DOWNLOAD/STREAM HYPERDRIVE from the follow the sites listed below:

In June of 2015, my family received news that my brother Ron was diagnosed with advanced stage colon cancer. As anyone can imagine, the news was traumatic and life changing for him, but his positive attitude and strength were his greatest assets. However, in the early morning of August 20, 2016, my brother Ron Marullo succumbed to this terrible disease.

After visiting him in the hospital and for his birthday in July of 2015, I spent a few weeks writing and recording a song along with my bandmates from the SteppingSTONE Band.

For many music inspires, motivates and calms us. There is always a song that can relate to a particular situation. My aim for this song was to remind my brother of his courage and strength and of what he means to me as a brother.

I would also like to stress the importance of cancer awareness and early detection. “Most cases of colon cancer begin as small, noncancerous (benign) clumps of cells called adenomatous polyps. Over time some of these polyps become colon cancers.Polyps may be small and produce few, if any, symptoms. For this reason, doctors recommend regular screening tests to help prevent colon cancer by identifying polyps before they become colon cancer (mayoclinic.org).”

Below is a link to a free download to the song written by members of SteppingSTONE Band for my brother. Hopefully, this song can be a reminder of the importance of early detection and awareness. A visit to your doctor for an early screening can save a life.

100% percent of all donations earned from this song will be given to PreventCancer.org so they can continue their excellent work in support of early detection and cancer awareness. A donation in any amount in honor of my brother and for this song are greatly appreciated.

You can also request a print of the Hyperdrive cover, which is a watercolor painting made by my brother. This is a painting of the first plane he flew in the Navy (T-34C from training squadron VT-10).

HYPERDRIVE LYRICS

Oh brother, oh brother, oh brother, oh brother, I remember way back when
I had to do, everything just like you, and I’d listen to all the advice you’d lend
Trade a rook for a pawn, and how life moves on
"I have been, and always shall be your friend"

BRIDGE
So hold on it’s a temporary nosedive
Light speed ahead, Gonna fix the hyperdrive

VERSE
I always looked up to you and your friends, and the times we’d spend watching those rockets take flight
And when you joined the navy, I never imagined you’d be up in the sky flying just as high
Talking with mom and dad and this news so sad, and it still doesn’t seem real
We’re gonna make it through, this won’t beat you, to me you’ll always be the man of steel

BRIDGE
So hold on it’s a temporary nosedive
Light speed ahead, Gonna fix the hyperdrive
Oh brother of mine, oh brother of mine

I have been, and will always be your friend
Oh brother of mine, oh brother of mine

A little about my brother and his work at Texas Humane Heroes.
