Nightbirde’s Family Launches Foundation To Help Other Women With Breast Cancer ‘Live Out Their Dreams’

By Movieguide® Contributor

In a new interview, the brother of Jane Marczewski, known professionally as the singer Nightbirde, shared how he and his family are keeping her legacy alive. 

Marczewski rose to fame while competing on AMERICA’S GOT TALENT. She inspired viewers around the world, as she performed on the talent show while also battling cancer in her lungs, lymph nodes, ribs, liver, and spine.

She passed away in February of 2022, but her loved ones are making sure her legacy of hope lives on. 

“Every time I hear that AMERICA’S GOT TALENT audition, it gets me all choked up,” her brother Mitch shared. “Her strength and her smile and all those things — I just miss her a ton.”

Marczewski was initially only given 6 months to live, but through the generous donations of others, she was able to go to a clinic where treatments extended her life by two years. 

“In those two years, Jane changed the world,” Mitch marveled. 

After her death, Marczewski’s family wanted to find a way to continue her legacy and help others. 

“We thought, ‘There have to be other Janes out there that don’t have the same resources, that don’t have the same family, that don’t have the same blessing that Jane had received,’” her brother explained. “So we set up a 501C3 called the Nightbirde Foundation.”

The Nightbirde Foundation serves young women with breast cancer, raising money to help them get into cancer clinics that will help them get the treatment they need.  

“They can live out their dreams and impact the world in the same way,” Mitch concluded. 

Mitch also shared another way her family is making sure to keep Nightbirde alive. 

In honor of the anniversary of her death, they are releasing the last song she ever recorded: a cover of Maverick City Music’s “The Story I’ll Tell.”

“These lyrics, Jane felt, were written specifically for her story,” her family wrote in an Instagram caption.

Singer-songwriter Jane Marczewski, professionally known as Nightbirde, captured people’s hearts while competing on AMERICA’S GOT TALENT. She passed died earlier this year, but her family is keeping her musical legacy alive. 

A post from the Nightbirde Foundation, an organization to support those with breast cancer, included a poem from Marczewski:

“I saw proof that God is kind

And that if I fall, someone will catch me

If I was an empty well, people would still gather

Not to take, but to give

I saw with my eyes

The white stag that we all stubbornly hope for

What we muster up the strength to believe in

Unconditional Love

Now that I have fallen farther than I thought possible

And never hit the ground

I cannot return to being who I was before

I have seen too much”

– NIGHTBIRDE

The post continued, “Just wanted to keep you all updated: we are still working on Jane’s books, getting her album out by the fall…What’s so beautiful about rolling out Jane’s legacy, is we are all doing this together, for Jane. You all are helping to solidify her legacy just as much as we are and we are so grateful for that.”
