Avery’s Fight

No Comments


Avery Watts was diagnosed with the rare disease Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia at the age of 6. After her diagnosis, Avery’s life became much more complicated. Luckily, she’s a very strong little girl. Through this project, she hopes to encourage others, especially those with Rare Diseases, to fight and be strong.

We thought Rachel Platten’s acoustic version of ‘Fight Song’ was perfect to help represent Avery’s message. According to Ms. Platten, ‘Fight Song’ was inspired by life experiences that were hurting her and making her feel like she didn’t have a chance. “I wrote it because I needed to remind myself that I believed in myself. No matter what, I still was gonna make music, even if it was on a small scale. Even if it was just for me. I didn’t want to skate past what was hurting.”

We would like to thank everyone involved in helping this project come together.
