Girl Diagnosed with Brain Cancer Sings Amazing Cover of Katy Perry's "Roar"

Olivia Wise was touched by the song's message, but we're even more inspired by her story!

If this doesn't make you want to cry, we don't know what will!

Olivia Wise, a teen diagnosed with brain cancer, recorded a cover of Katy Perry's "Roar" and has now left a lasting impression on everyone who has seen the video. Check it out below:

Being one of, if not the most inspirational songs of the year, "Roar" has influenced many young women. Olivia was touched by its message, and she wanted to let it be known.

The people who created the video left this message on their YouTube page:

"Olivia Wise has brain cancer. She came into a recording studio for her first time and recorded the Katy Perry song 'Roar.' She couldn't walk or stand, she didn't have her full breath or the energy she used to, and she was managing her new pains and new limitations. While her physical condition was rapidly fading, her spirit remained untouched. Olivia is a fighter and has gone through the fire, in fact, she was going through the fire while she recorded this song, but you wouldn't know it, because she was dancing right through it. She is an inspiration, a champion, and my hero. This is her 'Roar.'"

We hear your roar, Olivia -- and we love it!
