when people try to speak on the behalf of entire fandoms
I’m gonna come out of nowhere and ask you to play make-John-Green-find-the-thing.
My sister Faye is 12 years old and her and her friends had a week to obsess over The Fault In Our Stars adaption before one of them, Rachel, was diagnosed with bone cancer in her leg. She’d been poorly for awhile but doctors brushed it off as an active imagination; within weeks of finding it it’s spread to her lungs and she’ll be lucky to see in another Christmas.
My sister is now trying to get hold of John Green as a missive from him would mean everything to Rachel at this point. She’s set up a small industry emailing anyone she can find but I know he’s active on here so I though I’d give that a go, as well. I can’t even imagine what she’s going through, hell I can’t even imagine what my sister’s going through, but I know they’d all be struggling a hell of a lot more if there hadn’t been that story. All they want is a chance to say thank you.
Today’s September 16th and Rachel’s getting weaker by the day and spends a lot of her time sleeping, so I don’t know how long we have. All I can do is beg you - please, please help John Green find the thing.
