This Woman Found a Sweet Way to Keep Her Cancer-Fighting Sister's Spirits Up


It’s the simple things in life that make us smile.

Jennifer LaFace, from Pennsylvania, makes videos of herself dancing to cheer up her sister, Colleen Swearingen Madeya, who is fighting Stage IV ovarian cancer, according to Right This Minute. LaFace made the first video when her sister, who loves to dance, was facing surgery.

It makes her laugh and it keeps her mind off of it,” LaFace told the outlet.

In her most recent video, LaFace chose “Teach Me How to Dougie” by Cali Swag District, and it went viral on Facebook with nearly 93,000 shares.

You’re going to kick cancer’s ass today,” Laface says in the video below. “I love you, I adore you, I admire you.”
