Since her mother was diagnosed with cancer, Geysa has had one goal – make her mother laugh.
Geysa, told BuzzFeed Brazil her mother, Marinalva, was diagnosed with advanced stage breast cancer seven months ago, and that since then she and her father have been on a mission– to make her laugh.
"It's always been me, my father, and her," she said. "The sudden shock was huge and my dad was pretty shaken up; I had to keep up a tough front. The first, heaviest sessions were done with my father there with her. She cried, and he stayed by her side the whole time. During the treatment my father and I tried to make her laugh at any cost, with theater, musical numbers, everything done by just us two."

She said she recently had to take on the responsibility of looking after her mother while her father was looking for a job.
Geysa said she was only playing around with the selfie camera on her phone, but she loved the result and decided to post the video.
