Fun is a priority at this Minnesota children’s hospital.
Two nurses in the cancer unit at the University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital recognized that good health care is more than just measuring stats and giving meds, but also keeping up the kids’ spirits. So they decided to make a music video to the song “Brave” by Sara Bareilles, and feature their patients in the starring roles.
The video, which has since gone viral, also features 70 staff members singing and dancing, LEX18 reports.
“There aren’t always bad times, like you know, you need to be able to laugh about it,” Sarah Ewald, a patient battling cancer for the second time, said. “You need to have fun.”
