Morgan Platt, a fourth grader from Avon, Connecticut, is being treated for cancer at the Connecticut Children's Medical Center. Morgan was diagnosed with a brain tumor (glioblastoma multiforme) in June of 2011.

10-year-old Morgan Platt has always dreamed big. After she was diagnosed with a brain tumor (glioblastoma multiforme) in June of 2011, she decided to fight back and inspire others along the way. Throughout her treatments, Katy Perry's song "Roar" has encouraged her to get back up and fight like a "champion." During one of her appointments at Connecticut Children's Medical Center, she decided to make a music video in hopes it would go viral and raise awareness about her condition and the other types of cancers being treated at Connecticut Children's.

Morgan along with other patients and staff at the hospital have produced this video to raise cancer awareness. Just a click on the youtube video link here will help lift Morgan's and other young patients' spirits. CLICK HERE to register a view on youtube.

Thank you. Have a great weekend everyone.

UPDATE: Channel 3 in Hartford has picked this up and has the title on their website: Young Cancer Patient Hopes Video Will Go Viral. Others are also posting this elsewhere but the video has already received over 1,500 views in less than an hour.

Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Gang, a camp for children coping with serious illnesses, shot the video.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
