Flash mob dance organized for Tucson boy with leukemia

TUCSON - A Tucson boy diagnosed with leukemia got a happy surprise Saturday, thanks to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

The group organized a dance party, a choreographed flash mob with about 30 people grooving to the music.

10-year-old Larry Ronstadt said, "I didn't expect that honestly."

Ronstadt can't stop smiling, despite battling cancer for more than two years.

"When he was diagnosed with leukemia we had no idea what to expect good or bad," Larry's dad Jeff Ronstadt said. "And today is definitely one of the highlights to him being cancer free."

Now three quarters of the way done with treatment, the folks at Make-a-Wish are sending Larry and his family to Denmark and London next weekend.

"We're going to see the Lego factory where Logo's were first made," Larry said.

Mia Ronstadt says her brother's illness has been hard on the whole family. "And today I just feel like the whole world is supporting me, under my little brother," she said.

"At 10 years old he's already got one of the biggest things on his bucket list checked off, going to the Lego factory," Jeff said. "So it's will be amazing."

This was the first ever flash mob put on by Make-a-Wish. It was held at Funtastics in Tucson.
