BERN TWP., Pa. -

Belly dancers brought smiles to cancer patients Monday morning.

The dancers performed for chemotherapy patients at St. Joseph Medical Center in Bern Township.

One dancer said the group decided to perform the event because one troop member is being treated for cancer, and both of her parents are cancer survivors.

It's actually very rewarding and it's a lot of fun," said Stacey Phile, dancer. Everyone is very perceptive and smiles and it's about putting a smile on someone's face when they're going through a really tough time."

The group does a fusion-style of belly dancing.
