"Talk about a dream, try to make it real.." ~ Bruce Springsteen
I can name my favorite two celebrities very easily -- Oprah Winfrey and Bruce Springsteen. I loved them long before cancer, for different reasons and for many of the same. After my diagnosis, they helped me more than I could describe -- Oprah by having told me stories that grounded me with perspective and the Boss for giving me music that I hummed when I was too scared to breathe. In the end, both of these two superstars gave me something more precious than any tangible thing -- they gave me hope.
Now I want to ask them for one more favor, a small one that would only take them less than a minute. I would love for both Oprah and Bruce to send me a "Hope is" video along the lines of the examples shown HERE. If they can't submit a video, I would love for them to autograph this sign in which they complete the sentence, "Hope is..."
I have sent and will continue to send emails and letters to Oprah and Bruce requesting (or better yet, begging) for a response to this "Hope is" request. If you want to help, you are welcome to send your own emails and letters! With your help, I have faith we can reach these amazing individuals!
