Young star of viral video dies of cancer

Posted: Updated:

Some sad news to share with you. A young girl whose story we brought you here on WCAX News lost her battle with cancer.

We first met Maggie Philbrook in October of last year. She and some other kids being treated at the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth became internet sensations in a viral lip-sync video to Katy Perry's song "Roar." It has been viewed by nearly 4 million people.

Sadly, Maggie passed away Saturday. She was just 13.
