    Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” Inspires Young Cancer Patients

    PI girls, are you familiar with Kelly Clarkson’s song “Stronger”? Well, a group of courageous young people have taken that song and used it to help them during a very difficult time in their lives.

    Below is an awesome video of young cancer patients at Seattle Children’s Hospital who are lip-syncing to Clarkson’s song. I think it’s so inspiring and the video’s currently a huge Internet hit. Check it out!

    22-year-old leukemia patient Chris Rumble came up with the idea. He wanted to send something back to his former hockey teammates after they sent him a music video. Rumble felt Clarkson’s song reflected how he and other cancer patients were feeling.

    When Clarkson saw the video, she was touched. She sent a message back to the patients telling them that it meant so much to her and she plans to visit.

    It was not only good to see the kids happy, but it was also great to see how their parents were so happy as they watched their kids just being kids–dancing, singing and having fun (Chris Rumble).

    Rumble’s video is also part of Seattle Children’s Not Now, a creative program currently funded by Seattle Children’s Guild Association Teen Cancer Fund. The program is designed to support young cancer patients and introduce them to peers as they deal with their illness.

    I love, love, LOVE this video for so many different reasons. It reflects such courage in these young children, and how, even in the darkest of times, they hold their heads up and fight.

    The video also puts life in perspective for me. We all doubt and struggle and deal with adversity, but it’s how we cope that makes all the difference.

    It also shows just how music can be a positive force in your life. In times of heartache and pain, it can lift you up and motivate you to keep fighting. This also demonstrates why we should listen to positive music. Just as light music inspires, dark music can have the opposite effect.

    I’m so inspired and I pray for all these boys and girls. May they always know how much they helped others to feel inspired, simply by their strength and courage. And may God keep them strong now and heal them of their afflictions. May He also bless them so they can each go on to live long and healthy lives, forever inspiring and motivating and strengthening, and receiving the same blessings in return.

    Ladies, what do you think of this story? Do you have a special song that helps you through hard times? Which song is it?
