Members of Rise Against,

We want to thank you for the song “Swing Life Away.” It has been an anthem of sorts for our daughter, Namine. She was born with several birth defects, some so severe that doctors informed us, prior to her birth, that she would probably not survive long enough to go home.

I’m happy to say that despite doctors’ assurances, she has replaced them with her own words. She turned five this past July, has recently come home from her third heart surgery, and will be starting Kindergarten next year. Her favorite song remains “Swing Life Away.”


Paul and Jessica Eiche
and your smallest fan, Namine


Husband. Daddy. Programmer. Artist. I'm not an expert, I just play one in real life.
