The Story Behind the Song: “I Still Believe”

Jeremy Camp and Melissa dated for four months and then spent some time apart. But things changed and Jeremy received a call that Melissa, age 20 at the time, was in the hospital and had just received the diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Several months later when she was feeling better, they got married. When they got back from their honeymoon, Melissa started having stomach problems. The doctor then gave them the dreaded news that she only had a few months to live, and she passed away on Feb. 5, 2001.  I cannot imagine how hard that would be.  Jeremy wrote this beautiful, passionate song after Melissa’s death.
