A mother-daughter duo breaking it down to Drake's "In My Feelings" is taking the internet by storm.

With 2.7 million video views and counting, Abigail Lewis, 8, and her mom, Alyssa Lewis, performed the viral dance at Arkansas Children’s Hospital in the midst of Abigail's cancer treatments.

"It has been months since she and I have been able to dance together," Alyssa Lewis of Bentonville, Arkansas, told "Good Morning America." "So when we did this, it was a very personal connection we got to have."

She went on, "[Abigail's] jaw about hit the floor when she woke up in the morning and I told her how many people from all the different countries have seen her."

Abigail was diagnosed earlier this year with Ewing's sarcoma. She's been undergoing chemotherapy since June, Lewis said.

"Abigail has taken all of the diagnosis with grace," Lewis added. "She has stayed positive through the hair loss ... I know lots of people use the term 'fighter' since she’s fighting for her life. I like to use the term 'survivor.'"

In the video, Abigail smiles widely as she wheels her IV down the hall. She and her mom then performed the #KikiChallenge dance trend.
