Cancer Patients at Seattle Children's Hospital Create YouTube Video

Share Light #14 is the Cancer Patients at Seattle Children's Hospital Creating YouTube Video.

A YouTube video featuring the hemoncology floor at Seattle Children's Hospital has been very popular.  It would be an understatement to say it went "viral", for in one week's time since it was uploaded on May 6, 2012,  it received over 1.3 million views. The video features the song Stronger by Kelly Clarkson. Clarkson's single Stronger recently passed the 3 million sales mark (Source).

This video has the ability to encourage children and families struggling with cancer. Here is the video from YouTube that features both the patients and their caregivers.

A user named TheKariJP said in the comment about this video, "I posted this on my face book. For some silly reason I thought I was going thru some "difficult" stuff...What was I thinking? I love this video."

Kelly Clarkson enjoyed the video so much that she sent her own video response to the children that can also be found on YouTube at http://youtu.be/nSFrPHWLKJg. This is a wonderful example of how on YouTube one can not only share an original video but also a response to that video.
