Ribbons of Hope

Story Behind The Song

This song is written for my lifelong friend Sandi. Sandi and I have been friends for over 40 years. We met in 7th grade. Who knew then that one day Sandi would be faced with the most amazing battle of her life - the battle for her life. While battling Breast Cancer Sandi lost all of her hair. She developed Hats with Hair to help her through each day. She found it difficult to leave the house as a bald woman. She made a video for the hats with hair she developed and needed a song for the video. She turned to me, her lifelong friend of over 40 years, to write a song for her. And I did! Ribbons of Hope is a song for Sandi and for all of the people in the world who find themselves battling cancer, any illness and any and all diseases and difficulties that this sometimes difficult life can bring. The song is about her experience with breast cancer and it is a song of hope. It is about holding on to hope and sharing Ribbons of Hope. If you lose hope then you lose everything. I am happy to say that Sandi is alive and well. She beat breast cancer and wants other women to know they can too!

Ribbons of Hope
Written by: Carine Alicia Ulano

VERSE
I don't remember the day
I don't remember the time
The phone rang and I answered it
She was on the line

I could hear it in her voice
There was something on her mind
She said from this day forward and from now on
I'll look at my beautiful life in a very different way
Starting today

VERSE
We talked a while and she shared everything on her mind
The fear she was feeling and the courage she'd need to get her through this time
It will try to steal my strength my dignity and my hair
It will try to break my spirit
Can I find a cure somewhere?

Life will never be
My life will never be the same
Life will never be the same

CHORUS
Ribbons of hope that weave through my mind
Ribbons of hope that we share
Ribbons of hope that get us through this time
When all I'm feeling is despair
Ribbons of hope are there

BRIDGE
They tie us all together
They keep us from falling apart
We have all been touched by this
We're connected heart to heart
by ribbons of hope
Ribbons of hope

VERSE
And then she told me
Now that my battle is over
Now that my battle is won
I find myself thinking about
Those whose battle has just begun
I want to give them a ribbon of hope
To get them through each day
I want to tell them I know how they feel in each and every way
I hope they're listening
Listening to what I say when I say

CHORUS
Ribbons of hope that weave through our minds
Ribbons of hope that we share
Ribbons of hope that get us through this time
When all we're feeling is
When all we're feeling is despair

Ribbons of hope are there
Ribbons of hope are there

Ribbons of hope to share
