He’s got the eye of the tiger! A little boy with cancer roars during CHaD’s viral lip-dub video.

Katy Perry isn’t the only one “roaring” these days.

Brave kids from the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock proved that they, too, had the guts to roar like lions at the disease that is threatening to swallow up their bodies.

The video and charity run helped raise $  650,000 for CHaD kids.

In a viral YouTube video, young cancer patients at the New Hampshire hospital danced and lip-dubbed their way through the pop star’s hit single. They were joined by their nurses and even some fist-pumping administrators in business suits.

The video was created for the hospital’s Hero Half Marathon and Ripcord 5K. 3,141 people participated and managed to raise $ 650,000 for the hospital this year.
