When 10-year-old Morgan Platt gets an idea, it’s usually a roaring big one!

Case in point. The youngster who was diagnosed with a brain tumor two years ago decided to inspire other children orchestrating a video using Katy Perry’s “Roar” as the music for the project. Produced at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center where Platt was treated, the music video features young patients and staff dancing and lip synching to the song, emphasizing awareness of children’s cancer and the will to fight the disease.

Morgan and her family were among those at a “Disney on Ice: Princesses and Heroes” VIP reception at the XL Center Wednesday night, giving Java an update on how the video, that has gone viral, is doing and how she is doing getting the great Ms. Perry herself to watch and perhaps give the CCMC a shout-out.

“I got through to her press people and they gave me some ideas on how to reach Katy Perry,” explained the tenacious Ms. Platt. “I want her to do a video chat with the kids at the hospital,” she explained, noting that Perry people also suggested she reach out to songstress via Twitter @katyperry
