Viral video highlights a St. Jude tradition: The 'no more chemo song'

Clinicians at Memphis, Tenn.-based St. Jude Children's Research Hospital celebrated three-year-old Hadley Gray's last day of chemotherapy treatment with a hospital tradition: singing the "no more chemo" song, according to ABC News

Hadley spent six months at St. Jude's after her diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia. She underwent four rounds of chemotherapy treatment.

On her last day of treatment, members of the hospital staff, including Hadley's oncologist, came into her room with balloons and a card, singing the "no more chemo" song.

"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," they sang, before tossing confetti.

A family member of Hadley's filmed the song and shared it on Facebook. As of Aug. 21, the video has about 1 million views since its original posting.
