This is sure to inspire you this morning.

Sixteen-year-old Olivia Wise from Toronto, Canada suffers from an untreatable brain tumor discovered when she had a seizure last year.

She recorded a poignant version of Katy Perry’s “Roar” that her family posted to YouTube in mid-October which has more than a half-million views.

In fact, Katy Perry herself was so moved by the video, she sent a video message to Olivia, giving her words of encouragement and support.

Olivia’s family recently told CNN that Olivia’s condition has deteriorated since the recording and she is now “drifting in and out of consciousness.”

A fund started in her name has been created, with a goal of raising 150-thousand dollars towards brain treatment research.

Here’s her stirring rendition:  Olivia Wise “Roar”
