Hearts melted earlier this week when this heartwarming video starring a young cancer patient and her nurse became a viral phenomenon. The video stars Kamryn, a 7-year-old battling Kidney Cancer and her nurse, a former Penn Stater and avid THONer, Tom Shelley lip syncing to the classic tune “Love is an Open Door,” from Frozen. What started as a simple way to cheer Kamryn up during a trip to the hospital for a blood transfusion soon gained national attention when Kamryn's mother and biggest supporter uploaded the video to the #TeamKamrynn Facebook page on July 3.
