"America's Got Talent" singer Jane "Nightbirde" Marczewski is seeing "slow and little miracles" as she continues her battle against breast cancer.
The 30-year-old musician said she is hoping for a "faster miracle" in her treatment.
"I wish we would get a faster miracle. It's happening slow little by little, day by day. I'm getting a little better. I did get a scan result back and a bunch of stuff that was there disappeared. And a bunch of the big stuff has gone down in size so we're on the way," she told CNN's Chris Cuomo on Tuesday.
Nightbirde disclosed during her audition that she had a "2% chance of survival" as cancer had spread through her lungs, spine and liver and added, "2% isn't zero percent. 2% is something and I wish people knew how amazing it is."
The singer assured everyone that she is getting through with it just fine.
"My goodness. It's a lot to process," she admitted. "The highest of highs and lowest of lows in life happening at the same time…all of this playing out in front of millions of people. It's a lot to carry, but it's such an honor because the whole world is carrying their own weight."
When asked whether she was "comfortable with the struggle to continue to dream about what happens next," the singer said she would continue pursuing her dreams as she believed the pain of giving up will be worse than the uncertainty of the pursuit.
"I feel like life is like sometimes a game of 'Choose Your Pain,'" she said. "The pain of continuing or the pain of giving up. The pain of continuing – there's a lot more uncertainty that way, but I think the pain of giving up is so much worse."
Nightbirde also revealed she was spending time writing songs and singing.
"I'm so proud of what I'm writing right now. Pain can be a gift because it really drives you to deep places…to dig for gold...I'm really proud about the stuff I am working on and my voice is getting there. Today, I actually sang a lot and even though it's not to 100%, I'm just so happy to be singing and I can't stop smiling today."
After her inspiring performance in June where she debuted her original composition, "It's Okay," Nightbirde dropped out of "America's Got Talent" in August as she wanted to focus on her cancer treatment. She broke the news on her Instagram page at the time, telling fans that she was leaving the reality show due to worsening health conditions.
"Since my audition, my health has taken a turn for the worse and the fight with cancer is demanding all of my energy and attention. I am so sad to announce that I won't be able to continue forward on this season of AGT. Life doesn't always give breaks to those that deserve it — but we knew that already," the singer had written.
