Meaww reports that Jane Marczweski performs under the name Nightbirde. She is from Ohio. Sadly, this isn’t the first time Jane battles cancer. She shares with everyone that she’s been diagnosed with cancer three times.

America’s Got Talent Season 16 is judged by Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Sofia Vergara. Additionally, viewers can also expect to see Terry Crews hosting the talent competition. Furthermore, as many people know, it is hard to elicit any sort of emotion from Simon Cowell. However, that isn’t the case when it comes to Jane Marczewski. Remarkably, all the judges agree that Nightbirde gets a golden buzzer.

A devestating diagnosis

Somberly, Jane keeps a blog. According to Meaww the blog details “learnings from her battle with the deadly disease.” It appears that the young lady handles this awful prognosis better than most. She never sounds hopeless.

She writes the following on her blog. “On New Year’s Eve, I was diagnosed with terminal cancer.” While the words terminal cancer are enough to stop anyone in their tracks, it is much more than that. “Innumerable tumors were found throughout my lungs, liver, lymph nodes, ribs and spine.”

Heartbreakingly, Jane goes on to detail her initial reaction. “I was on the living room floor leaning of the report, head in my hands. Six months to live. Two percent chance of survival.” Undoubtedly, she’s doing what she can to make the best out of her situation. That includes pursuing her dreams and competing on America’s Got Talent. Watch Jane’s emotional performance below.

  1. Blown away, like the AGT judges, by Nightbirde’s performance. Loved her combination of singing and speaking. She reminds me of someone else. Hard to believe so much talent lies in that itty bitty being.

  2. Where do you get she only has 6 months left to live? Everywhere else on the internet says she believes they have cleared everything up with her most recent treatments but won’t know for sure for a few months when they do follow up scans…

    1. I believe the clip from her performance says that. In addition to other news outlets at the time the show aired. Thankfully, medical diagnosis change. So, hopefully you’re right.
