Cancer patient, 2, gets surprise daddy-daughter dance on final day of chemotherapy treatment

U.S. & World

ATLANTA, GA (WCMH) — A daddy-daughter duo is melting hearts all over the internet.

Brett Thompson’s wife posted this video of him surprising their two-year-old daughter Phoenix. The little girl is at a Children’s Cancer Center in Atlanta fighting acute myeloid leukemia.

When her first round of chemo wrapped up,  her mom says a nurse came into Phoenix’s room and dressed her in a yellow princess gown. 

Brett then entered wearing a suit. Surrounded by stuffed animals, the two danced to Tim McGraw’s song “My Little Girl.”

“I mean honestly I don’t think I could have picked a better man for my kids,” Christina wrote on Facebook. “At 2-years-old this is hard on her on her family and the people that love her. These little moments make these times not so hard.”

Brett was in the Army for six years, and he was medically discharged four years ago, NBC affiliate WXIA-TV reports. He usually is at home taking care of their four other children while his wife stays at the hospital with Phoenix.
