Staff Serenades 3-Year-Old Who Beat Cancer as She Prepares to Leave Hospital
She'd been there for six months.
A 3-year-old who successfully battled cancer received a sweet send-off from hospital staff in Tennessee.
Hadley Gray had been at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis for six months for chemotherapy to treat leukemia.
Last Thursday, staff members told Hadley it was time to “get out the door” with a precious song.
In a cute video of the moment, staff sang, “Our patients have the cutest S-M-I-L-E. Our patients have the sweetest H-E-A-R-T. Oh, we love to see you every day. But now's the time we get to say, pack up your bags, get out the door, you don't get chemo anymore.”
The toddler smiled as the staff threw confetti and applauded her.
“After six months of Hadley enduring chemotherapy and being away from our home and support system of family and friends, we had spent a lot of time thinking and looking forward to this day,” Brittany Edgeworth Gray told InsideEdition.com.
“It felt very surreal to have her team of doctors finally tell us — in such a fun way — that we were really going home!” she added.
Gray said thankfully Hadley responded quickly to the chemo and is now in remission.
Doctors believe Hadley will go on to live a normal life.
