CENTRAL VALLEY - School employees put together a special video for the daughter of an Orange County elementary school principal who was recently diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia.

Catherine and Jacob Gardner made the video for Smith Clove Elementary School principal Chris Berger's 5-year-old daughter, Kelsey.  Kelsey was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and loves the movie “Trolls.”

The couple coordinated more than 300 people, including Kelsey's family, classmates, school students, parents and staff, to make a lip dub “Trolls” video to put a smile on Kelsey's face.

"Anything we can do to give her a distraction for a moment or two just made us all feel so special,” said Catherine Gardner.
