Viral video: A special father daughter dance

Dad of the year award goes to Mike Carey!

His daughter, McKenzie is a 12-year-old girl from Georgia. She was 18-months-old when she was diagnosed with a disease that affects the cells' ability to generate proper energy and result in bodily system failure.

The life-threatening condition has made her non-verbal and unable to walk. The disease, though, hasn't stopped her from loving pageants and dancing with her dad.

During one of the pageants, McKenzie had the crowd erupting in applause as her dad lifted her from her wheelchair, spun her in the air and danced around stage to Miley Cyrus', "The Climb."

Her mother told a local news station, "We are her voice and her legs. My husband started doing these dances with her to inspire people, and she has inspired people and touched people's hearts from all over the world."

Watch the video now going viral and grab the tissues!
