But it is a video of Millie singing along to the hit-song from Frozen that has moved thousands of Facebook users, and has garnered over 535,000 views and has been shared almost 13,000 times.

The nurses at the New Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Glasgow are shown swaying along to the song in the video, while another sits on the bed and helps Millie hold a karaoke microphone.

“I must thank the lovely girls from the night shift last night in schiehallion for being good sports and making Millie's day!. You are all amazing!! [sic]” a member of the child's family wrote on the Facebook page.

Millie's family are currently using a Just Giving page to raise £100,000 to enable the child to access treatment for neuroblastoma which is available in the US.

The family has so far raised over £10,000 towards the cause.
