Morgan Platt is the embodiment of courage.

After being diagnosed with a brain tumor in June 2011, the 10-year-old Avon, Conn., girl decided to fight back and inspire others along her journey.

During an appointment at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, she decided to make a music video, using Katy Perry’s “Roar."

Morgan and mom, Kathy, managed to get nurses, physicians, other patients and parents involved and you just have to see the results.

Morgan hopes the video will go viral and raise awareness about her condition and the other types of cancers being treated at the local hospital.

“It’s these little bursts of greatness for these kids that keep them going. I’m so proud of Morgan.  She’s defying the odds!,” Kathy Platt said.

Hole In The Wall Gang, a New Haven based non-profit that actor Paul Newman founded in 1988, helped shoot and edit the video.
