Five-Year-Old Cancer Survivor Stars In Her Own Katy Perry Music Video

May 07, 2014

Five-year-old Addy, who was diagnosed with stage IV kidney cancer last year, got to fulfill her dream of becoming a pop star with her own Katy Perry-inspired music video. Now in remission, Addy would spend time during her hospital visits practicing her singing and dancing, according to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, who helped put the video together.

Addy chose to sing Katy Perry's hit "Roar" because KP is her favorite artist and because the lyrics inspired her throughout her battle with cancer.
