When someone close to you is suffering from an illness, it can be really hard to stay positive. When that illness was already beaten but comes back for more, it can be devastating. 

That didn't stop 9-year-old Archer Nelson from finding a way to cheer up his mom following her second diagnosis of breast cancer. After the news was broken to him and his brother, Archer sat down and penned a song about the disease with the tasteful name, "Boob Spelled Backwards Is Boob." 

After reading the talented songwriter's work, Archer's father, a San Francisco area DJ, told colleagues about what his son put together. With touching lyrics like, "Never forget the good things in life / Like candy, life, eating, having fun," word about the song spread fast on social media and caught the attention of some major celebrities.

Soon, musicians from every background were coming together to help make Archer's song come alive. Hozier, Florence and the Machine, and even The Grateful Dead contributed to the final cut of "Boob Spelled Backwards Is Boob," which you can check out down below!

The star-studded music video kicked off BoobProject.org, run by Archer's parents Mike and Christi Nelson in hopes to raise at least $100,000 for the Breast Cancer Research Center.
