A children’s hospital in New Jersey found the best way to show its patients they aren’t alone.

The –>, a pediatric rehabilitation center, treats children with a variety of special needs, including brain injuries, physical disabilities and life-threatening illnesses. One thing these children all have in common? They work through the often demanding obstacles their conditions present them each day.

To remind its patients they’re not in this alone, the Children’s Specializes Hospital started a social media called  –>, where people upload photos of themselves making “fight faces” to show their solidarity. Their theme song? Pop star Rachel Platten’s breakout hit, “ –>,” which plays in the campaign’s music video above.

#FightFace has already gotten some great responses. Take a look at some of photos submitted so far:

The Children’s Specialized Hospital also released a music video featuring hospital patients and staff featuring the song “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten. Watch the touching video below.
