A dad has gone viral for how he shows love for his son who is undergoing cancer treatments under the strict guidelines due to the coronavirus. Since Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas, has limited the visitors allowed inside the hospital, dad had to come up with another way to show support for his son who is battling cancer.
According to PEOPLE, Chuck Yielding is a devoted dad who wishes nothing more than to be present for his 14-year-old son who is battling acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) and undergoing chemotherapy at the hospital. However, due to hospital visitor restrictions, he had to be creative with how he offers support since only one parent is permitted in the hospital with him.
So, he decided to pull out a dad move and dance.
According to a Facebook post from Cook Children’s Medical Center, Dad dresses up in a flashy bright outfit each Tuesday when his son undergoes chemotherapy at a clinic for cancer treatment. His mom, Lori, who works at the hospital, joins him while dad waits outside in the parking lot.
While Aiden gets settled inside, Chuck finds the nearest window and waits until his son is able to go to a room where he can see his dad from the window, the hospital said. And when his son appears in the window, dad shows his support by starting up a music-free dance party while his son watches.
Chuck isn’t shy to try new or classic moves and will break out everything from the robot to disco and the sprinkler.
Aiden, 14, was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) toward the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to visitation restrictions, only one parent or caregiver is allowed into the medical center per patient. Every Tuesday while Aiden’s mom joins him in the clinic for cancer treatment, his dad, Chuck, stands outside and dances to lift Aiden’s spirits. Here is a highlight reel of Chuck’s best moves! #erasekidcancer

“Just anything to bring his spirits up a little bit and let him know he is not alone. We are with him,” Chuck told KTVT News. And his son, appreciates it, too. “It’s funny watching him figuring out all that he is going to do. Yup. It just cheers me up sometimes,” said Aiden.
Chuck and Lori are hosting a blood drive on Sat., Oct. 3 in Fort Worth, Texas to benefit Cook Children’s and the Fort Worth community.
