CHaD Hospital Roar YouTube Video Goes Viral Featuring Katy Perry’s ROAR
A bit about CHaD
We have a fabulous Children’s Hospital here in NH – Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth (CHaD). This is New Hampshire’s Children’s ‘go to’ hospital when they need a top-notch specialist. Many individuals are sent to Dartmouth – the main hospital – when they need specialized treatment simply because they have a lot of the latest technology.
As many of you know – Katy Perry has struck the hearts of many with her song, “Roar.” And for those who don’t know the song, it’s a song about over-coming abuse. This video is: “The video was the brain child of producer Chris Cammuck.”
I had it on my iPod,” she said. “I would play it in front of a group of people, and I would do the motions. Everybody followed. It was amazing. I was floored.” (Source WMUR)
The YouTube video went viral overnight on Facebook!
The video is extremely heart-warming, inspirational, and makes you really think about how a song can really uplift an individual and make a difference in their life.
What’s even more special about this video for my family is that the young lady you see in the tie-dyed t-shirt – she is my daughter’s best friend. She’s a delightful young lady who had been a patient at CHAD for nearly two weeks prior to being released shortly before the video aired on YouTube.
The young lady – her name is Meghan and she has a lot of talent. She has a beautiful voice (she can sing), can tap dance, knows sign language and strives to learn as much as she can. Sadly, though, each day brings her not knowing what life is going to throw her way. You see, she suffers from Cystic Fibrosis (thus the color of her tie dyed tee) and diabetes. She’s a fighter though! And, she certainly “ROARS” with each breath she takes.
All of these children in the video “ROAR” as they continue to fight for their lives no matter how small the illness, or how big the illness, may be.
So, the next time you’re feeling really down because of what life has thrown your way – refer back to this CHaD Hospital Roar YouTube Video to remind yourself that you can “ROAR” too.
