Just days before his 22nd birthday, Chris Rumble tested positive for leukemia. As an inpatient at Seattle Children’s, he made a music video featuring patients, families and nurses dancing and singing to Kelly Clarkson's hit song "Stronger." Simply making the video lifted the spirits of many of the children on the floor, said nurse Brittany Skinner. Clarkson posted a video response to the kids thanking them for the video.
