Dylan, Boy With Cystic Fibrosis, Dances To 'Dynamite' (VIDEO)

It's time for your daily dose of optimism. YouTube user ChrissieZie posted a video of her son, Dylan, who has Cystic Fibrosis (a disease that causes problems for several organs) "making the most of his situation." Though Dylan has to endure long, boring breathing treatments, mom found a way to make the time go by quickly -- and even make them fun.

Her solution: playing music and letting Dylan rock out. In this clip, he's dancing his heart out to Taio Cruz's hit, "Dynamite." And, thousands of viewers have been inspired by Dylan's positive approach to an otherwise unfavorable situation.

One commenter wrote, "As an adult with CF, this kid is my new hero." Another said the video "gives me hope for humanity." So, here's to you, Dylan's mom, for making your child's life a little better -- and helping so many others along the way.
