This is the heartwarming moment nurses put a huge smile on a young cancer patient’s face by teaching her a brand new dance.

The eight-year-old was diagnosed with the disease two years ago, and spent four-and-a-half months on Ward 84 before going into remission.

But around seven weeks ago, Louise, who lives in Royton, relapsed and ended up back in hospital.

Last week, during her second round of five-day chemotherapy, the youngster was surprised in her room by a group of nurses who asked her if she wanted to learn the ‘Kiki’ dance:

The routine – which is to rapper Drake’s hit single, In My Feelings – was captured on video by her parents and shared on social media.

It has already had hundreds of shares and thousands of views.

Louise’s mum Janice Thompson praised the staff at RMCH for going above and beyond for her daughter every single day.

Louise loves singing and dancing and was so happy when she got to do it

The people working at RMCH are truly amazing. The compassion and dedication of the staff just inspires me, they take it to a whole new level.

Louise’s mum added that the hospital staff make her daughter smile “every day”.

Her family hope she will be able to go home for several weeks before undergoing a bone marrow transplant in September.
