I always knew that the TLC Foundation was important to the lives of these many deserving kids but today confirmed just how much we mean to these amazing kids.
What transpired today hit me like a ton of bricks, it was very beautiful and moving to say the least.
I went to the hospital this morning to see my friend Layla who was just admitted because her cancer has returned, it was devastating news to all that love her.
When I entered the room Layla was sleeping so I told her dad that I would come back when she was awake. He informed me that Layla was asking about me and he didn’t want me to leave without seeing her so he decided to wake her up. When Layla awoke and saw me she put out her arms wanting to give me a hug. I can’t begin to tell you how I felt at that moment, she was so happy to see me, it was like all the pain and suffering went away for a few minutes as we hugged each other.
There is a special place in my heart for my friend Layla, there is nothing I won’t do to help her get through this next battle.
For all those individuals who always remind me not to get close to the children, you have never met Layla because if you did you couldn’t help yourself but feel for this wonderful girl.
