Giant flash mob to hit the streets of Melbourne for young cancer survivor

Get ready to dance, dance, dance!

Federation Square in Melbourne’s CBD will be taken over by a giant flash mob today in a bid to make 7-year-old Eitan’s charity wish “to make lots of new friends by becoming a star on the internet” come true.

“Eitan was diagnosed with leukaemia, and spent lots of time in hospital while other kids were making friends. It’s now time to celebrate his remission with an epic dance party!” Make-A-Wish said in a post on their website.


“Eitan wants to be famous so he can make other people feel happy about themselves, and to help everyone have friends.


“We need you to bust a move, join our flash dance to JT’s ‘Can’t stop the feeling’, and make Eitan feel like the most special kid in the whole world – helping him be brave and strong for the journey to come”.

The young Victorian boy, who has battled leukaemia for most of his life, will be the star of the show, which kicks off from 4.00pm.

People are being encouraged to learn the dance and join in on the fun, or to just turn up to show their support.
