A group of staffers at Louisiana’s Willis-Knighton Cancer Center wanted to celebrate 12-year-old Sophia Petikas’ last day in the hospital in the most appropriate way possible — doing the Nae Nae.
Petikas had been receiving proton treatments since the fall of 2014 after doctors discovered a tumor in her spinal cord. One of her doctors, Daniel, promised he would learn her favorite dance, Silento‘s “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae),” once she completed treatment. And when that day came, he went above and beyond the call of duty.

Daniel managed to coordinate a flash-mob-style rendition of the dance with the entire proton radiation team that had worked with Petikas, even making sure they all wore Chuck Taylor’s in her honor. The team had clearly rehearsed, never missing a step as Petikas performed along with the group. Talk about a memorable sendoff.
