People checking into the Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center expect to get top-notch treatment! But what they don’t expect is for a fellow cancer-patient to cheer them up with songs. That’s exactly what 9-year-old Oliviah Hall does, who is currently being treated for Glioblastoma, an aggressive, malignant form of brain cancer.
“She just really brightens up the whole department; everyone here knows her,” said a radiation and oncology nurse. She has had 33 radiation therapy sessions so far, and under doctors observation, after every session, Oliviah sings to other patients waiting to go into treatment and some got used to Oliviah’s songs before their own treatment!!
Oliviah has always loved music, but was too shy to sing in front of other people. Then she was in the hospital for her brain surgery and started singing. “But just seeing her bring so much joy to everybody’s life just inspires me, the strength that she has; she’s my own personal superhero,” her Dad Bryan Brown proudly says!
Yes! Parents, Patients and Staffs all have a mouthful of praises for this little girl and she is happy indeed saying “I just feel like I’m singing to people and making them really happy; I just like seeing people, and it feels great singing to them,” It’s truly an inspiration for all that, If this 9.Y.O. decease battling girl can look at things in life in spite of the problems she has and look at them in such a positive way, then others should also be living that way!!
