WATCH Kids and Their Doctors Dance a la Dancing With the Stars

Those in need of a pick-me-up need look no further than this video of doctors’ dancing with their kid patients.

As ABC's “Dancing With the Stars” wraps up for the season, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta posted a sweet video to its Facebook page featuring a hepatologist, an oncologist, a physiatrist and a cardiologist dancing with their (sometimes very tiny) patients.

One patient had a liver transplant and is now thriving. One is battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma for the third time. There are several rehabilitation patients featured, and a 7-month-old awaiting a heart transplant.

Dr. Martha Clabby, the cardiologist seen dancing with the baby, said, “At Children’s, we have some of the toughest patients who face battles that many people couldn’t imagine. In those tough times, dancing and having fun can be the best medicine for staying positive. We made the video to show our patients that we are here not only to help them heal, but to celebrate their strength and triumphs.”
