Childhood cancer is one of the most terrible diseases out there, so when one of these little warriors beats the odds, it’s truly a reason to celebrate.
Seattle Children’s Hospital in Seattle, Washington has shared a video of a pint-sized patient named Solomon celebrating the completion of his cancer treatment, and it’s so cute and poignant that it’s warming hearts all over the world.
Clad in cute fuzzy PJs and bare feet, the little guy looks like he’s on top of the world as he stands in his hospital room. Behind him you can see the various tubes, screens, and other apparatus that helped him beat the deadly disease, but those instruments are the furthest thing from this little boy’s mind as he boogies down to “Billy Jean” by Michael Jackson.
Holding a microphone in one hand, Solomon lip syncs to the song while demonstrating some pretty impressive dance moves! He’s even got that signature sparkly glove, just like the one that the King of Pop himself once wore.
After this video of Solomon was shared on Facebook it took off, garnering 5 million views in just two weeks! The non-profit Strong Against Cancer also shared the clip along with the caption:
“We’re SO happy about this news coming from #StrongAgainstCancer HQ at Seattle Children’s: Solomon finished cancer treatment! To celebrate, he rang in the new year in the perfect way – with his favorite Michael Jackson dance moves.”
There’s so much joy in this video, it’s hard not to tear up a bit while watching! We’re just so happy for Solomon and his family. Now that he’s back on the path to wellness we hope he never stops dancing. He’s got his whole life ahead of him, and that’s a beautiful thing.
Watch Solomon celebrating being cancer-free in the video below, and please share this wonderful moment with others.
