10-year-old Jenna Gibson, a Maple Valley, Wash. resident, has been a patient at Seattle Children’s since she was initially diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia earlier this year.

While staying at the hospital’s cancer care inpatient unit recently, she had the idea to create for her friends and family a video entitled: “Haunting: A Head” – all in the spirit of Halloween fun.

In the video, Jenna, hidden beneath a magical hospital robe that makes everything but her head invisible, can be seen on a spooky hijinks across the floor.

“I wanted to show some of the things that were frustrating but kind of funny about being in the hospital,” said Jenna. “And I wanted to use only my head because it seemed mysterious.”

She hopes you enjoy her “brainchild”, and is grateful to be spending this Halloween back at home.

Jenna is currently doing well, and continues to visit Children’s for follow-up care.

Jenna’s video is a part of Children’s Not Now creative arts program for patients with cancer. Other stories made possible by the Not Now program include:
