Dad Joyously Dances Next To Son's Hospital Bed To Celebrate Release After Chemotherapy
If you're looking for the most adorable viral video in recent memory, then you're most certainly in luck here.
Kenny Thomas posted a video to his Instagram page of him celebrating his son Kristian's successful recovery from the first round of chemo treatment. Of course, the father of four doesn't do a low-key celebration either - and why should he?
Kenny is seen busting out some seriously awesome dance moves to Ciara's 'Level Up' as part of the Level Up Challenge, which the singer launched as a way to promote the track on social media and for others to share their videos of them dancing to it.
You can see how much it means to the one-year-old, who is clapping, waving his arms around and joining in with his father dancing any way that he can. It's absolutely heartwarming to watch.
Kristian has been battling against leukemia, which he was diagnosed with last month, and has spent 32 days at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. You can't blame his dad for breaking out into a dance after hearing the news that his little warrior would be going home.
The Instagram clip has been up for less than a week, but it's already been watched over two million times.
One user wrote: "He looks so happy to be sharing that moment!! God bless you and your family and may he provide a full dose of daily strength while you're in this battle!!"
You wouldn't be surprised to hear that Ciara has also taken notice of the video, and you'd be equally as unsurprised to know that she's also had her heart melted by what she has seen.
"My heart can't take it watching this proud Father @KennyClutch_ dancing doing the #LevelUpChallenge because his baby's numbers were up. God is so good! We're dancing for you too angel! Let's #LevelUp against Cancer together!" she wrote.
Ciara posted the video on her Instagram page, with it already passing 3.5 million views.
Just take a look at Kenny's page and you'll see how much he loves dancing for his boy. He's also explained why he does it, too.
"Music is therapeutic for him and he's always calm when music is on and when someone is dancing," he told Good Morning America (via the Daily Mail).
"He's always in the studio with me and is always seeing me dance. He is a bundle of joy and ball of fire who is truly inspiring."
All we can say is best of luck to Kristian with his treatment - oh, and Kenny, please never stop dancing.
