Tim McGraw and a dad diagnosed with terminal cancer, Michael Hugo, teamed up for a very special project. Michael wanted to leave behind something his daughters could cherish and the country music superstar helped make it happen!
Cancer is a terrible, horrible, awful disease that does nothing but destroys and causes harm. After doctors diagnosed Michael Hugo with terminal brain cancer in 2022, the dad knew he wanted to create memories with and for his daughters.
One of the things Michael wanted to do was to record a duet with Tim to his song "My Little Girl." Michael plans to have the recording played at his daughters’ weddings.
So, he posted a video online reaching out to Tim McGraw. In it he stated that "whether I'm here or not, one of my, one of my dreams is to be with my, my little girls for their wedding and be there with the dance, dancing with them."
Michael added, "and if I'm not there, at least I can be part of that."
Tim McGraw Helps Dad With Terminal Cancer
After posting Michael's request online, Tim, who lost his father to a similar type of cancer, reached out to make the duet happen. Tim McGraw and the dad dying of cancer recorded a duet of this special song for Michael and his children!
Tim expressed to Michael and his family how much being able to help them meant to him.
“I'm just glad that I can be here for you guys," Tim said. "This is like a highlight for me in my career."
In addition to the wedding duet video recording for his daughters, Michael has also been doing other things to ensure he's still present in his daughters' lives after he's gone.
"What I've been trying to do, as much as possible, is give my children all the life lessons I can in a short amount of time," Michael said. "You know, 30 years of life lessons. And you know, I write birthday cards for their 21st birthday. I have things like that to try to let them know I love them."
What a beautiful clip that reminds us that life is precious. We should treasure every minute with our children and our parents!
Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."
