One family is extra grateful

The family of little Avery Rogers credits the 'Dancing Doc' with making their daughter better. Due to a brain condition Avery couldn't dance or twirl, but Adkins spent a lot of time with her, and the girl got better. During the time Avery was at the hospital, Tony danced with her every day and she's grateful for him.

Maybe more doctors should try the dancing approach?
