I still remember very clearly a year ago hearing Heather’s story. My heart broke for her. I had never met her before, but I felt like I needed to share my support, and put a little Elmo Icon on both my Facebook, and Twitter photos. Zack loved Elmo.
Below is a post from Heather (@Tjzmommy on twitter) talking about an event that is coming up in Toronto on March 18th in support of Zack’s dream room. I will be going with my little Q who is also a big Elmo fan. Please read her story below, and try and make it out to this great event! Even if you can’t make it, donations are welcome!
The road that led to Elmo….
When I saw that “Being Elmo” might be coming to Toronto, I emailed Connie again and asked how I could help make this happen. I wanted to hold an event, not only to raise money but to celebrate Zack’s life, with his favourite red friend. She put me in touch with her wonderful contact in Toronto and the planning began. Sending several emails back and forth, the Bloor Cinema decided to generously host an exclusive screening as a fundraiser for Zack’s Dream Room. While Connie will not be able to attend that day, she will be in town on Friday night for the first show. She and I have plans to meet and watch the film together. There is no other way, I would want to experience that moment, than with the woman who helped make this happen. She and I are both excited to meet and she even asked if I could take her to the hospital room. I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to thank her in person for all that she has done.
