The novel coronavirus pandemic has made it significantly difficult for people to stay together and be with each other. However, a local man has been able to bridge that gap to be there for his son, even while being far away.


Last week, reports captured the story of Chuck Yielding, a man from Fort Worth, Texas, who put on quite a show at a hospital parking lot as he tried to cheer his son up during treatment.

Chuck's son, Aiden, is currently receiving treatment for acute lymphocytic leukemia at the Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth. The 14-year-old boy got his diagnosis at the beginning of the novel coronavirus pandemic, and he's been going to the hospital frequently.

Due to safety requirements, the hospital restricted visitors to the facility. Per hospital policy, only one visitor is allowed. So, while Chuck's wife, Lori, stays with their son, he decided to put on weekly dancing shows.


Every Tuesday, Aiden goes to his window, and his father is always there, conjuring up funny dances to cheer him up. Speaking on why he does this weekly, Chuck explained:

"Just anything to bring his spirits up a little bit, and let him know he is not alone. We are with him."

The entire sequence is genuinely inspiring. The family goes to the hospital every Tuesday for treatment, with only Aiden and Lori getting in.


As for Chuck, he manages to find the nearest window to his son's treatment room and begins his routine, all so he can cheer the little boy up.

The Yieldings have even created a Facebook group. Called "ALL in for Aiden," it helps them document Aiden's cancer treatment.

Even funnier is the fact that Chuck's dances to no music. He just moves his body around, doing whatever feels natural. Father and son connect via phone, and sometimes, even Aiden joins in and tries to copy some of his son's dances. Lori explained to news sources:


"Family is everything, togetherness is everything. But even when you can't be together as a whole family as a unit, you find ways that you can."

The Yieldings have even created a Facebook group. Called "ALL in for Aiden," it helps them document Aiden's cancer treatment. Dance therapy isn't entirely new when it comes to cancer treatment.

Last December, Marcia Love-Bowens, a nurse's assistant at the Brenner Children's Hospital in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, captured headlines after bringing a smile to a three-year-old with leukemia.


Per reports, Bowens was captured dancing to "Jingle Bell Rock," while the little girl smiled from her hospital bed. The girl's father had captured the lovely video, and it showed a rare moment where she could laugh amid the cancer treatment.
