about the video

A 10-year-old Chilean girl dancing to overcome obstacles from her hospital bed has captured the hearts of millions of people online, with a video of her dancing on top of her hospital bed in the southern city of Puerto Montt. Adorable Darly Leviante is seen dancing to Puerto Rican ballad singer Luis Fonsi’s hit “Despacito” inside the “Hemato” Children’s Oncology Unit at Puerto Montt Hospital, next to a choreography set by “Clowntagiosos,” a group who practice laughter therapy. Last October, Leviante was diagnosed with grade four medulloblastoma, an aggressive type of brain cancer that is at a very advanced stage. Leviante has sent positive and inspiring messages to other children suffering from illnesses, telling them to not give up hope and to continue being happy and to not forget to smile.
