Today, I have been blown away…as in completely and totally mesmerized, enchanted and inspired by the most beautiful girl. Talia Joy Castellano is her name. Heard of her? Oh, let me tell you that if you haven’t you WILL because she is justifiably becoming a sensation. Why? Well, because she is the ultimate, truly the ULTIMATE Silver Lining.
Talia is a 12 year-old cancer patient who does makeup tutorials on YouTube…bald. She calls makeup her “wig.” She is charming, fun, witty, engaging and absolutely wonderful.
In one of her most “serious” and powerful vlogs (a/k/a video blog), she announces that she has bad news—she has two types of very serious and very aggressive cancers that spread quickly and are very deadly. She’s phenomenally open and matter-of-fact about her diagnosis, prognosis and how she feels.
“Since I’m almost 13 they’re giving me a lot of input on it. So basically I’m going to decide…whether to do the bone marrow transplant or whether I want to…just live the time that I have remaining.”
She tells her viewers, “I know it’s a lot to take in.“
She assures her viewers not to “freak out because it’s not like it’s tomorrow. It’s about quality of life.”
She is facing cancer and death head-f-bomb-on. Her courage and audacity are stunning.
She wants the whole world to know what is going on with her. She says, “I really, really, really love, love love doing YouTube” and communicating with the world.
Talia is brave, strong, and inspiring and quite frankly one of the greatest Silver Linings imaginable! Please give yourself a gift today and go to her site. Be prepared to fall in looooove.
