3 YEAR OLD LEAH THE OVERCOMER WILL BREAK YOUR HEART

Videos of little Leah are taking the internet by storm. I saw this on CBS News and it took my breath away. She is a total inspiration.
CBS News reports:
Leah Carroll has a rare blood disorder and she spends most of her time at a hospital. To distract the four-year-old from boredom and pain, her mother looked for songs that Leah could lip-synch to. That's how the video of her singing "Overcomer" became an internet sensation. Mireya Villarreal reports.
Leah has fought through two bone marrow transplants and has spent 322 days in the hospital. Now she is singing her favorite song.

And this from USA Today:
USA Reports:
A 4-year-old girl singing about overcoming obstacles from her hospital bed has captured the hearts of millions of people online.

Leah has a rare blood disease called severe congenital neutropenia, which makes her prone to infections. She’s had two bone marrow transplants in her lifetime, and has spent nearly a year in the hospital.

Leah remains positive through her health challenges, says her mother, Lindsay Carroll. When Leah has a tough moment, she tells herself, “I’ve got this.” She loves to sing, dance, and play the drums.
