Fifth graders sing to cancer patients

TULSA --  A fifth-grade choir filled the Cancer Treatment Center of America with Christmas cheer. 

About 40 students from Anderson Elementary sang a medley of Christmas songs. Patients, their families and employees lined the halls to listen with smiles on their faces.

"It made everyone happy and feel good inside," Dominic Miller, a fifth grader at Anderson Elementary said. 

Sue Edwards and her husband grabbed their seats early. 

"Even though it's a sad place, it's a happy place to be and they make sure that you are comfortable and happy," Edwards said. 

The Edwards' travel from Ada to Tulsa every three weeks for four to five days at a time. Her husband is receiving chemo for lung cancer. 

The mini concert the students put on reminded the Edwards what they missed out on back home last night. 

"We have a great granddaughter who performed her band concert at home and we just saw a picture of her and this kind of fills what I would be doing if I was at home," Edwards said. 

Patients bobbed along to the songs. Some wiped away tears. 

"You're doing a good thing and you're making people's hearts rejoice and it feels really good," Miller said.
