Music Video Lifts Young Cancer Patients’ Spirits

This holiday season, the staff at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU did something extra special for their cancer patients. They created a music video to Katy Perry’s song “Roar.” The video features dancing, lip-synching, and general excitement from the kids, the staff, and even the VCU basketball team. It was a special treat for the patients and an inspiration to other children who have cancer.

The idea to create the music video came from 8-year-old Campbell, a leukemia patient at the hospital. Campbell is a huge fan of Katy Perry and listens to her during treatments to fight the pain.

You can watch Campbell kick off the video below.
