MINNEAPOLIS, MN - Two nurses at a Minnesota hospital wanted to make a video featuring their patients, something fun to look back on, when cancer is hopefully just a memory.

The nurses in Unit 5 at the University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital heard the song Brave by Sara Bareilles and knew it just fit.

So on their days off and before their shifts, they shot a video.

Nearly 70 staff members danced their hearts out and cheered on their patients, who were not just the inspiration, but the stars.

What no one expected was their fun video to go viral. Some 300,000 people have already watched it.
