A young girl identified as Isobel Fletcher was left smiling after nurses performed an impromptu dance routine.
The ballet-obsessed 5-year-old girl has been battling cancer and the nurses thought it wise to come up with the best dance moves to cheer her up.
In a video shared by Daily Mail, the hospital staff identified as Dr Baylon Kamalarajan and colleague Emma Mander could be seen tiptoeing to the hospital while wearing official ballet outfits.
The video shows the little girl smiling at the pairs attempt to spin to the theme music.
She also took part in the dance and spun round to show the two kindhearted nurses how the dance is done.
Emma and Baylon performed various ballet positions to the beaming girl who looked excited throughout the performance.
Fletcher has been undergoing chemotherapy treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia after she relapsed earlier in the year.
Below is a post from the hospital.
"When Ballet-mad Izzy came into our Children's Clinic for her cancer treatment on Friday, two of the team surprised her with a very special routine... Huge thanks to Baylon and Emma for the lovely surprise, and well done Izzy for *literally* keeping them on their toes!"
In other news, Emmaculate Minayo Ambani was leading a normal life in Kakamega county until 2019 when she gave birth to her second child and her life changed completely.
The mother of two was diagnosed with breast cancer in early June 2019 while breastfeeding her newborn following months of tests that did not show what she was ailing from.
Speaking exclusively to Briefly.co.za, Minayo who is a nurse by profession, assumed she had lactation mastitis and doctors managed it until one of them recommended a biopsy.
"I first thought it was mastitis, but after going from one hospital to another one doctor decided to do a biopsy," said Minayo.
Mayoclinic describes mastitis as inflammation of breast tissue that sometimes involves an infection.
