SEATTLE (KPLR)-A video used to cope with illness at Seattle Children’s Hospital turns into a viral internet sensation. Teen Chris Rumble is not just one of the many kids recorded in the video for the Kelly Clarkson song “Stronger”, he also directed the video.
Over a month ago, Rumble said he wasn’t feeling well and thought he had mononucleosis. But doctors said ninety-five percent of his blood was full of leukemia cells. He says the hardest part was telling his mom about the diagnosis.
Just like the message of the song “Stronger”, Chris himself is getting stronger. Doctors say his leukemia is an immature form and should be knocked out by four rounds of chemotherapy.
Film students from Seattle University were the camera crew to help Chris create the video.
