Toddler Celebrates 11 Months Cancer-Free In Adorable Dance Video With Dad.

When you’ve got news this good to celebrate, all you can do is dance.

Kenny “Clutch” Thomas is a motivational speaker and dancer who finds joy and inspiration in fatherhood. The doting dad of four often shares pictures and videos of his happy kids on his popular Instagram page, and one recent video he created with youngest son Kristian is going viral for all the right reasons.


Kristian was born with Down syndrome, and as an infant he was diagnosed with leukemia. The little guy proved to be a tough fighter over the next year as he underwent several rounds of treatment for his cancer. In November 2018 he was finally declared cancer-free, and 11 months later Kenny is still so thrilled by the news that he couldn’t wait for the 1-year mark to celebrate.

“Father Son chemistry 11 Months Cancer Free!!”Kenny wrote on Instagram. “If we can do it you can do it!! Live Free! Drop a <3 for Father Son Vibes!!â€


In the adorable video we see the father and son duo dancing to a song by Lil Mama. Kristian has the biggest, cutest smile on his little face as dad jostles him around on his lap, dancing to the thumping beat. Behind him, Kenny’s face is cracked open in a beatific smile as he enjoys dancing with his little boy.

The video went viral almost the second it hit the web. No one can get enough of this sweet little guy and his incredibly good news!


We’d say these two have the ultimate reason to celebrate, wouldn’t you? Kristian looks like the picture of good health in this video, and we hope he continues to feel good and live his best life. Oh, and more dance videos would be nice, too!

Watch Kenny and Kristian’s adorable moves in the video below, and be sure to share.
