Andrew Jones is staying positive and showing off his dance moves as he continues to go through treatment for leukemia.

The Texas basketball star tweeted a video of himself dancing to Look Alive, a new song by BlocBoy JB featuring Drake, while brushing his teeth on Tuesday. He joked that’s how he wakes up every morning.

Fair warning, Drake’s verse contains NSFW language.

Jones was diagnosed with leukemia in January, but he’s making progress in his treatment and has been incredibly strong during this battle. He even recently shared video himself shooting baskets. It’s incredible to see him demonstrate such strength and positivity during this process.

Plenty of people responded to Jones’ video, encouraging him in his battle and calling him an inspiration.

The college basketball world has shown Jones an outpouring of support as well. Teams and players have worn shirts honoring him in his fight against cancer, including TCU, Texas Tech and West Virginia star Jevon Carter.A Division-III player who battled leukemia last year offered his own letter of support. Meanwhile, Longhorn fans have been raising money to help Jones and his family.

With all that support, Jones continues to face his fight with that incredible positivity.
