Hazel Hammserley has Stage 3 Neuroblastoma, a cancerous tumor that develops from nerve tissue. But all she really wanted was some pizza. She decided to write on her window in the Children’s Hospital in LA, “Send Pizza Room 4112.” What happened next truly shows the caring nature of humans.
When users of Reddit.com saw the image, they immediately began sending pizza to Hazel’s room in the Children’s Hospital. It became so overwhelming that her mother, Lauren, had to request that people stop sending anymore.
With the prevalence of the internet nowadays, it is astonishing what we can accomplish. It is so refreshing to see that a community, like reddit, can take a break from looking at cat videos and commenting on memes, and come together to make a little girl’s life much more meaningful. Thank you random reddit users, for confirming our belief that there is good in everyone!
