CHELSEA Stutchbury's stirring debut single has been launched worldwide and the generous singer will donate 100% of proceeds to cancer research.

Last month, the NewsMail brought you the touching story of how the young, Bundaberg cancer survivor had battled life-threatening lymphoma to fulfil her dream and sing.

Her incredible journey has led to dream encounters with Katy Perry, Delta Goodrem and Taylor Swift, which fuelled her musical ambition.

The 18-year-old Queensland Conservatorium student named the song Vincristine - after a chemotherapy chemical she required.

Chelsea said proceeds from her song would be donated to the Queensland Institute of Medical Research.

A chance conversation with the institute's Professor Geoff Hill, when he filled in for her regular specialist, led her to that decision.

"He mentioned they always need money for research," she said.

"Mum and I thought it would be lovely to be able to give back to his life-saving work.

"If it were not for research I would not be here - it is close to my heart."

Prof Hill said the funds raised would help to continue vital and promising cancer research.

Chelsea said the song would not have been possible without the support of Dr James Morton, Nick Adams, Make a Wish and Sony Foundation Australia.

Vincristine is available on iTunes and Spotify.
