ATLANTA -- A two-year-old girl hospitalized and battling leukemia received a surprise daddy-daughter dance after her first round of chemotherapy. 

Father Brett Thompson came into her daughter Phoenix's hospital room in a suit, after nurses dressed her up in a yellow princess gown. 

Brett's wife recorded the video, that has since gone viral, of the two dancing to Tim McGraw's 'My Little Girl' while surrounded by stuffed animals. 

With Phoenix battling Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Brett's wife stays at the hospital, while he stays at home with the other children.
