Mom With Rare Cancer Throws Hospital Dance Party, Inspires Millions With “Juju On That Chemo”.
Recently, it seems like everywhere you look there’s another video of someone dancing to “Juju on That Beat,” the song and dance that have turned into a challenge/craze. We’ve already introduced you to the 4-year-old who totally crushed the dance on Ellen, and we showed you this video of police officers crashing a halftime show and performing the dance themselves, and now we have another “Juju on That Beat” video to tell you about… but this one is entirely unique.
In the video, Ana-Alecia Ayala and her “chemo buddy,” Danielle Andrus, are dancing in a hospital room at Baylor T. Boone Bickens Cancer Hospital.
In December of 2015, Ana was diagnosed with a rare uterine sarcome called rhabdomyosarcoma. The wife and mom of a three-year-old daughter has been undergoing chemotherapy treatment since January 2016. But, despite sickness, Ana has an amazing attitude.
“Who says cancer and chemo have to get you down?” Ana wrote in the caption of the video below. “We’ll have the last laugh!! Having an awesome chemo buddy like Danielle Andrus who is ALWAYS down for a dance party helps too!! We want to show the world that dancing and laughter is the BEST medicine. We are #AnaStrong!!”
Some of the hashtags included in her status are phrases like “no hair don’t care” and “juju on that chemo.” Ana had no idea that this would happen, but the video has since gone viral!
Omg you guys!!! 10+ millioin views!! I was joking when I talked about this going viral, but you have really lifted my spirits with the love and support and outpouring of prayers! Your prayers have gotten me this far!! I only hope I can inspire or motivate someone going through what I’m going through to not give up and encourage caregivers and chemo buddies to not always have to take things so seriously all the time. To lighten up the mood and have a little fun!!
Check out the awesome video below and share!
