Some nurses at the University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital in Minneapolis wanted to create something fun for their young patients to look back on when cancer is behind them. So the nurses, along with the children created a video that's become a hit on YouTube with more than 300,000 clicks.

Nurse Brittany Bloemke says the kids with cancer are brave and amazing and teach the staff so much about life. So with the help of some 70 staff members, the nurses and children danced and plated to Sara Barielles' song, "Brave."

Bloemke tells KARE-TV the nurses know what the patients have been through and want others to be inspired by their strength.
