Cancer patients, survivors hope to catch the attention of Diddy with viral videoPosted: Updated:
A video going viral across Westchester County and the country is hoping to catch the attention of a famous rapper for a good cause.
The video created by Fighting All Monsters, whose mission it is to garner support for families facing childhood cancer, shows pediatric cancer patients trying to get noticed by Sean Combs, also known as Diddy.
Cassidy Kline, 4, of Larchmont, is in the video. She is celebrating remission and being back at school after beating stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma.
So why Diddy? Her mother says, "The 'Bad Boy For Life" song is kind of like the anthem, the unofficial anthem of them. If you listen to the lyrics, "We ain't going nowhere,' basically it's telling cancer like, we're not going anywhere."
Their hope is to bring attention to pediatric cancer. The video has already caught the attention of fellow rapper Snoop Dogg.
According to the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation, 43 children per day are expected to be diagnosed with cancer, and only 4% of the funds allocated to cancer research and treatments are for childhood cancer.
