A Loving Father’s Inspiring Dance With Special Needs Daughter

Mar 25, 2015 at 9:30 am |

Mike Carney takes the stage with his then 12-year-old daughter McKenzie during a summer pageant but this isn’t just like any father, daughter dance. McKenzie suffers from mitochondrial disease which is life threatening and has impaired her speech and movement so instead Mike waltz’s with his daughter across the stage in her wheelchair to Miley Cyrus’ The Climb.

Just wait till you see that gorgeous smile beaming across her face when he starts spinning her around.

The family travels more than 500 miles to Florida from Georgia for specialized treatments, which she has been responding to well. Unfortunately her insurance doesn’t cover those treatments, and if you’d like to help out, please go to ‘mckenzieshope’ on Go Fund Me.


This father daughter dance will melt your heart. Just wait for 1min 19sec…the tears will start streaming.
