THIS TOUCHED MY HEART.
You may have heard us mention this on the show this morning. I wanted to take a moment and share it with those of you who missed it.
It’s a sad day for many today, mourning the loss of a young girl who was truly an inspiration for children and adults alike.
Olivia Wise was a 16-year-old beautiful, talented human being with plenty of life to live. Unfortunately her journey was cut short when she lost her battle with Brain Cancer at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto, Monday.
Many people were praying for her as she showed incredible strength for such a long time but understandably Olivia was tired and just couldn’t fight anymore.
The light beyond the clouds in this story is- through her story and the help of family and friends, Olivia has raised awareness of this terrible disease and thousands of dollars to fund research.
Before Olivia died she made a wish through the amazing Children’s Wish Foundation. Her wish was to record a song (she wanted to be a singer) professionally in a studio.
Obviously this video touched many people all over the globe, it went viral in no time and even made its way to Katy Perry herself. She was so touched by Olivia’s story, she responded with this…
Since its release, the video has raised over $85-thousand for the Liv Wise Fund, a foundation in support of Brain Cancer awareness and research.
Olivia thankfully, also got to see the video Katy Perry sent to her before she passed away.
If you’d like to make a donation, all the details are at LivWiseFund.com
Remember to be thankful…every day is a gift. My thoughts and prayers go out to Olivia and her loved ones.
rest in peace sweet girl.
