SEATTLE (CBS NEWS) - The kids and staff at Seattle Children’s Hospital’s hematology oncology unit are proving that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

Using the song “Stronger” by North Texas native Kelly Clarkson, the group has created a music video to show that they won’t be brought down, despite being diagnosed with cancer. The video showcases many of the patients’ lip synching and dancing talents, gleefully displaying “the robot” and other impressive moves.

According to Seattle Children’s Hospital “On the Pulse” blog, the music video was the idea of Chris Rumble, a 22-year-old Children’s cancer patient who had been diagnosed with leukemia. In April 2012, he went to the hospital because he had swollen glands, thinking it was mono – eight hours later, he had been transferred to Children’s with a cancer diagnosis.

Since his old hockey team had sent him a music video for his birthday, he wanted to return the favor.

“I’m everyone’s big brother and I have a lot of friends here at Seattle Children’s,” Rumble told On the Pulse. “I wanted to make a video to send back to my team and I thought what better way to do it then with the kids on my floor.”

Rumble said one of the best parts of the video was seeing the kids do something that made them happy, and also seeing their parents happy since their child was enjoying themselves through a difficult time.
