Heartwarming Video Of Dad Dancing With His 11-Month Cancer-Free Son Is Going Viral For All The Right Reasons

Cancer sucks. It claims the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans every year. This little guy, however, beat the deadly disease. Kristian was born with Down Syndrome and was diagnosed with leukemia while still an infant. But he proved he’s a warrior, too. After receiving several rounds of treatment, he was declared free of cancer. Now, 11 months later, his father Kenny Thomas is still so happy, he’s still celebrating their victory. This time, with a dance.

The father and son recorded a dance to a song by Lil Mama. The heartwarming video has been racking up tens of thousands of views on Kenny’s social media accounts, and people love every second of it. They have thanked the dad for brightening their day with the adorable footage and adored the bond the two of them share.

When asked about the inspiration for the cute performance, Kenny told PIX11, “I figure why … be the dad that’s grieving and complaining about his son being in the hospital and his family being in the hospital all day?”

Still, it wasn’t easy for the family.

Kristian got his leukemia diagnosis in the summer of 2018. The cancer was caused by a low platelet count, a side effect of the Down Syndrome the little boy has been living with since birth.

“But I was just happy at the fact that [Kristian] was just here,” Thomas said. “I knew he was going to change people’s lives off the bat — and he already changed ours the second he came out.”

To make the most out of a difficult situation, Thomas — who owns the New Jersey’s Kenny Clutch dance studio — started documenting his son’s courageous battle with cancer by breaking it down on camera. He released a series of popular Instagram dance videos with each milestone of Kristian’s journey.

Coupled with the hashtag #FightChristian, the recordings have garnered thousands of views and responses.

Some time ago, Thomas and Kristian even won Ciara’s “Level Up” social media challenge. It was a dance in honor of Kristian undergoing his first round of chemotherapy at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia last June. The pop star even awarded the family in person.

“We want his life to be whatever it is that he wants it to really be,” Thomas said. “I’m just here to try and give him a little spark and a little boost in moving forward.”

“For people who have to go through this in the future — I want them to take a look at our story and take a look at our life and see that you can get through this with positive energy, and it’s going to be fine.”
