Cancer affects many people’s lives. It can be a frightening, daunting and lonely experience. With centres across the UK and worldwide, Maggie’s provides a welcoming, supportive ‘home from home’ for anyone affected by cancer.

Brand-new gospel-inspired song ‘Bring Your Own Sunshine’ is composed, arranged, performed and produced by one of the UK’s most exciting saxophonists, vocalists and composers, Kim Cypher.

Featuring phenomenal US guitarist B.D. Lenz and the incredible London-based CK Gospel Choir, ‘Bring Your Own Sunshine’ is an anthem for Maggie’s, spreading hope, positivity and sunshine, just like Karen did.

Official Video:


Bring your own sunshine to take away the tears
Make your own laughter to conquer those fears
‘Cuz on a cloudy day, those clouds will roll away
And the sun will come shining through
Bring your own sunshine whatever you do

Bring your own sunshine to brighten up the day
Share it with others in your own special way
‘Cuz when you’re feeling down, your friends are all around
To pick you up when you fall
Bring your own sunshine to share with them all

The amazing cover art for ‘Bring Your Own Sunshine’ was created by one of Karen’s beautiful daughter’s Emily. The sunshine cake was baked full of love and captures all of Karen’s happiness, positivity and sunshine. It expresses perfectly the meaning behind the track and portrays the warm welcome guaranteed at Maggie’s Centres, where there is always a cake on the table!
