The COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible for Chick to be by his son’s side during his chemotherapy treatment sessions. However why the witty father found a way to be with his son throughout these challenging times. He dressed up in the brightest colors he could find, went to the hospital’s parking lot, right under Aiden’s window, and started dancing to put a smile on his child’s face. This touching dad dance became a tradition, as Chuck would go there every Tuesday and show his best moves to brighten up Aiden’s day.

Teaming up with the famous singer Jason Derulo, Will Smith helped teach the father-son duo some cool new dance moves. Later on, during a video call, he told Aiden to open up a present he had sent him. The 14-year-old was thrilled to find out he had received a brand new PlayStation 5, a DuelSense controller, and a GameStop gift card. Smith made it possible with the support of GameStop Giving.

“Joy and laughter is such critical medicine. That commitment to just a little smile, just a little laugh, it goes so much farther than we could even imagine. So, shout out to Chuck! Great work, man! Keep it right there!”
