There’s just something about the bond between a daddy and his little girl. One daddy-daughter duo is sending people grabbing for the tissue box with their sweet hospital room dance.
Earlier this month, 2-year-old Phoenix was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Just two days later she began a ‘very aggressive chemotherapy. She’ll will have four rounds of chemo that will be completed in a five month period.
After weeks of chemo at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Brett Thompson, Phoenix’s dad, gave her an adorable surprise. First, she was sent some beautiful dresses.
Then Brett surprised Phoenix by wearing a suit and together, surrounded by stuffed animals, they danced to Tim McGraw’s ‘My Little Girl.’
Brett was in the Army for six years and he was medically discharged four years ago. The Thompson's left Fort Bragg and moved to Georgia with their three kids at the time.
Christina said they obtained legal guardianship of Phoenix when she was 7-weeks-old. She said Phoenix's biological mother is in active recovery and has continued to be a part of her life.
Now, the Thompson's care for Phoenix along with their four other children, ages one to 11-years-old. Christina said Brett is out of work as he cares for their children.
A benefit is being held in Winder, Georgia for Phoenix at the Barrow County Veterans Resource Center on September 9th. Kirby G's Diner in McDonough, Georgia will be donating 10 percent of their proceeds on August 30 to Phoenix’s Fight.
