Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song” is beautiful, powerful and now perfectly illustrates the strength of our courageous young patients at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital. In a new video produced by our Child Life Department and Communications Team, pediatric patients from Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital gathered recently to forget about their medical challenges and had fun performing Platten's hit. Below is a compelling video which serves as an inspirational reminder as to why we are raising money for this important cause.
