One man's mission to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research has a unique presentation: Cliff Satterwhite sang Garth Brook's “I've Got Friends In Low Places” for 36 hours straight.

His motivation? His dear friend Sandra Holiday, who goes by Smitti. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997, and went through chemo, radiation, and a mastectomy to rid her body of the cancer. She succeeded. But then, 10 years later, she was diagnosed with cancer again — this time, it was colon cancer. She beat that as well.

However, the treatments left her with neuropathy, and she has to attend physical therapy for it.

Cliff is a karaoke host at the Stars Bar and Grill in Federal Way, WA, and Smitti was his mentor. So he decided to raise money for her fundraising group called Smitti's Committee by singing for 36 hours straight. He won't be beating any world records, but he'll sing the same song on repeat for 36 hours without sleeping, and only a 2-minute break between songs to gulp down some water, eat a couple bites of food, or run to the bathroom.
