WATCH: This Cancer Patient Battles Through Cancer While Singing And Dancing To ‘Havana’
After becoming the longest running song in the top pop charts by a female artist since 2013, “Havana” has brought Camila Cabello a tremendous amount of success. Not to mention that it has kept her fans happy and uplifted – even through some of their worst circumstances.
This has been the case for 6-year-old Cabello fan, Darcy, who has been diagnosed with leukemia. Due to the effects of chemotherapy, Darcy has not had the strength to walk, until recently. Her aunt Vane celebrated this moment by posting a video on Twitter of Darcy not only walking again, but singing and dancing to “Havana” as well.
Here’s the video below:

In this video you see Darcy going through the different stages of her cancer. The first part is a video clip of Darcy prior to being diagnosed with cancer. In the second part of the video you see Darcy going through the process of chemotherapy, during which she’s unable to walk due to the effects of the treatment. Lastly, towards the end of the video you see Darcy at her current stage of battling through cancer. Although she has lost her hair at this point, she is able to walk again, which makes her aunt Vane very happy.
Although there are different stages of Darcy being shown in this video, one thing that never changes is her spirit and love for “Havana.”
Moments after the video was published on Twitter, Cabello responded directly to Darcy and her aunt Vane.

Namaste to you, your family and especially Darcy. She's such a strong girl filled with love and light.
May she be blessed with recovery, so that she can continue to enjoy dancing to the music she loves and being the treasure she is.
So may it be.

This person was able to relate to the difficulty of the process Darcy is going through.
My heart feels so full after watching this ? I understand her pain, last December I was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma and it was killing me Day by day, I’m in remission now!! But I remember going through these stages, it’s not the same diagnosis but it gets better 🙂

Another person opened up about her little sister who is also fighting leukemia.
My little sister is fighting this same exact fight right now. My sister was a gymnast before her diagnosis. The strength they have is so incredible. Your niece is beautiful! You all will be in my prayers. Stay strong ???
