One look at the amazing kids in this video, and you’ll notice the smiles on their faces long before the fact that they are battling pediatric cancer.
On Thursday, the “Today” show released the video above as part of their Shine a Light series. The video, called “Truly Brave,” combines Cyndi Lauper’s chart-topper “True Colors” and Sara Bareilles’ recent hit “Brave,” and spotlights several patients from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia who are helping the two female artists sing the remix.
Seven years ago, “Today” co-host Hoda Kotb was diagnosed with breast cancer. She knows firsthand the struggles cancer patients go through and more than empathizes with the ones who must do so as children. So to acknowledge the strength of these kids, increase awareness of pediatric cancer and raise money for the American Cancer Society, Kotb created this collaborative project.
