Two-year-old shares special dance with father on her last day of chemotherapy
The family has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds so they can provide for their other children and the mother during this very difficult time
Phoenix was diagnosed with leukemia on August 2. The two-year-old also has, what is called, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), a group of conditions that involve the blood, where her bone marrow doesn't work normally and fails to produce enough blood cells to support her system.
The girl's mother, Christina Thompson, recently shared a video on Facebook of her husband, Brett, dressed in a suit dancing with their daughter who was in a princess costume, as she completed the first round of chemotherapy. The two danced to Tim McGraw's 'My Little Girl' and the video got over 230,000 views. “Today on Phee’s last day of chemo on her first round and Daddy came to visit,” Christina said in the post. “Little did we know he had some surprises for us.”
Phoenix is being treated at Atlanta’s Egleston Hospital. Brett and Christina also have four other children and the father has taken time off from work to take care of Phoenix.
The family has started a GoFundMe campaign to help them through this difficult time. According to the page, the proceeds will also go to aid Phoenix's biological mother Whitney. She has been coming to the hospital, working and keeping up with many other things, it was stated.
