- She is presently treated at Glasgow’s New Royal Hospital for Sick Children
- To keep her brave while receiving chemotherapy, a group of nurse performs “Let It Go a video that touched hearts of the social media users
FALKIRK, United Kingdom – A heartwarming video of a group of nurses singing “Let It Go” to a little girl receiving chemotherapy is now going viral on the internet.
Millie McColl, three years old, was diagnosed last June with stage 4 neuroblastoma, which is a form of nerve cell cancer. It is the most common cancer in childhood and the most common cancer in infancy. It most frequently affects the adrenal glands, but can also develop in nerve tissues in the neck, chest, abdomen, or pelvis.
An article by Lindsey Archibald for The Daily Record published on November 8 said that Millie is being treated at Glasgow’s New Royal Hospital for Sick Children; where she is receiving chemotherapy. And to keep the spirits up in the room, the group of nurses thought they’d give the kid a treat with a song “Let It Go.”
As one nurse sits near to Millie, another four perform a synchronized dance routine while wearing shades and singing the Frozen song. The kid clearly enjoys the moment as she can be heard laughing along and playing with a microphone.
Lynsey McColl, Millie’s mother, has started a JustGiving page to help raise money for her daughter. The fund will be intended to get treatment for her in the US that is not available in the UK.
“Unfortunately the reality of this type and stage of cancer is that there is around an 80% chance the cancer will return and there is not yet a protocol of treatment for relapsed neuroblastoma in the UK,” the statement in the page reads, as quoted by Sam Rkaina in an article for the The Mirror published on November 7.
“This is why we as Millie’s family have decided to start fundraising now for further preventary treatment available only in the USA called the DFMO drug. Each donation made is greatly appreciated as it takes us one step closer to giving our beautiful girl the bright future she so deserves,” the statement reads further.
Online users showed their compassion for the kid; saying what the nurses did is truly heartwarming.
“Beautiful girl ‘you are an inspiration to us all’ keep smiling, wishing you strength as you endure your treatment,” said Facebook user S. McBryde.
“My own daughter, Emily (7) watched Millie’s video singing Let it go and has asked that I send Millie her pocket money to help pay for her ticket to America. With love and hugs from Emily,” said Facebook user J. Easton.
