2-year-old with Down syndrome celebrates 11 months cancer-free with dad. Let’s hear it for him!

[ad_1]

Beating an insidious disease like cancer is no small feat by any measure for anyone of any age. In fact, it’s such an enormous achievement that it deserves praise and celebration, especially when you consider the fact that the survivor is only 2-years-old.

 

This is why it’s so heartwarming to see the video released by Kenny and Kristian Thomas. They made the video to honor little Kristian reaching the milestone of being 11 months cancer-free.

 

Two-year-old Kristian, who has Down syndrome, was diagnosed with leukemia in June 2018. The child underwent five grueling rounds of chemotherapy before going into remission, and so far, there’s been no sign of his cancer returning.

To celebrate this major victory, he and his dad Kenny, who used to entertain his son in the hospital by dancing for him, have released their own precious video. In it, the pair can be seen doing their special victory dance, which, of course, is so adorable it brings tears to our eyes.

 

Kenny, a choreographer and dance studio owner, took to Instagram to release the video, along with the caption: “Father-Son chemistry…11 Months Cancer Free!! If we can do it, you can do it!! Live Free!! Drop a [heart emoji] for Father Son Vibes!!!”

Needless to say, Kenny and his son have proved to be quite a hit. The video has generated over 28,000 views on Instagram, with folks overjoyed at the positivity and love on full display.

 

Kenny told UNILAD:  “We know first hand how it can be dealing with the struggles of childhood cancer. The last thing anyone wants to lose is their faith and happiness.”

 

Kristian was the fourth child of Kenny and his wife, Josilyne. The couple learned that there was a 75 percent chance that their son would be born with Down syndrome during a hospital visit in 2016 when Josilyne was still pregnant.

 

Life may have thrown many things at little Kristian, but he’s not allowing them to get in his way and is enjoying life to the fullest!
