Stop Here And Fill Your Heart To The Brim: Watch This Dad And Daughter Dance The Beauty Back Into The World

dad and dancing daughter are two loves you should know about

Talk about a daddy who loves!

A truck driver from Dallas, Georgia named Mike Carey has become a YouTube star along with his precious daughter McKenzie.

The two released a video on June 17th that had them dancing on a stage together, and the people must love it… because it's already reached five million views!

His wheelchair bound daughter suffers from mitochondrial disease which has impaired her ability to speak or move.

The father is determined to show his daughter a ton of love with the limited time they have together. He said:

"The way I look at it, my daughter is 12 years old – most of these kids don't even make it to their 13th birthday. I'm not going to waste a single day being negative when I don't know how long she has to live. Why turn your life into a negative mess when you could be positive and make a difference? You ought to see her. She might not be doing everything a normal child is doing, but she's so happy."

The daughter had originally participated in some non-special needs beauty pageants starting when she was five-years-old, but recently felt it would be impossible because of her disease.

However this daddy came up with a solution, and it brought the whole world to tears!

Props to Mike Carey and McKenzie for making this world a whole lot better!

    A lovely story but PLEASE PEREZ. The term "WHEELCHAIR BOUND” is very offensive. The girl simply is a person that uses a wheelchair. Thank you. :)

    What a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful man and father and and even more beautiful daughter. She truly had the smile of someone completely and utterly adored. People can spend a lifetime an not know that kind of love. They are so so lucky to have each other. You can feel how profound their love is for for each other and that is something that is forever and always. I can only imagine that there is a beautiful and wonderful mother behind these two! I wish this meaningful and deep kind of love for everyone :)
