Cancer Fighting Girl Pours her Heart out in Song and Melted the Internet
An adorable little girl with a rare blood disorder has shown the world what it means to be an “overcomer.”
In a video that has gone viral, four-year-old Leah Carroll is seen in her hospital bed singing and dancing along to her favorite song, Mandisa’s “Overcomer.”
Her mother, Lindsay wrote:
“My daughter has overcome two bone marrow transplants. She has spent the last 322 days away from her family and mostly in the hospital due to complications. However, she has the joy of the Lord and a love for music. Overcomer is one of her all time favs! Someone suggested I share it with you personally! She is such a light to all she meets….I hope she brings a smile to your face, too!”
Since she was six-months-old, Leah has battled severe congenital Neutropenia, a rare blood disorder that prevents the production of white blood cells that ward off infections. She currently suffers from graft versus host disease, and the road to recovery has been far from easy.
Take a minute to be amazed by the brightness and joy of a little girl who won’t let sickness keep her down…
