Young cancer patients feeling a little "Stronger"

BY Lindsay Ray
PUBLISHED May 10, 2012
Yesterday, I came across a video making its way around the Internet. It made me smile (and made me a bit misty eyed). And because these kids, young adults, nurses and parents are better at sharing their message than I ever could be, check out their inspiring video below. 22-year-old leukemia patient Chris Rumble (he's in an orange shirt in the video) decided to use his film talents to make a music video of Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger" featuring his fellow patients, families and staff on the hematology/oncology floor at Seattle Children's Hospital. Rumble is an artist-in-residence- at Seattle Children's as part of LIVESTRONG's Community Impact Project. What started as a project to cheer people up has now become a viral sensation. And Clarkson even tweeted about it saying, "Oh my goodness y'all have to see this! It's beautiful! I can't wait to visit these kids and nurses!" I agree with Kelly; it's definitely a beautiful video.
