This song was written lovingly for Leyla Dietrich by Mike Suave and Maddy Walsh of The Blind Spots featuring verses by Jayhigh and Rising Sun of The Gunpoets.
In 2012 before entering tenth grade, Leyla received a devastating diagnosis of brain cancer. To learn more about her, please join the Facebook group, Leyla’s Village at www.facebook.com/groups/120966754724315/
Our sweet girl recently moved into Hospicare, and from there she’s comfortably and bravely, with the assistance of her wonderful teacher Carol Teelin, working on her senior project at LACS: she is planning her own funeral, or more aptly, her Celebration of Life.
Leyla has big, beautiful plans for her celebration, which will require some funding. The funds for every purchase of this song (at whatever fee you choose) will be deposited directly into an account that Leyla will use to create her ideal celebration.
To know Leyla is to love her. We hope that this song will bring you peace, love, and light in her name…and will remind you to always Live Life Like Leyla.
