After being diagnosed with lung, kidney, and colon cancer earlier this year, Vivian Waller made a bucket list that included meeting actor Robin Williams. Her terminal illness rendered her unable to fly, so after friends reached out to Williams he sent her a heartfelt message instead.
In the video, Williams says:
“Hi Vivian, it’s Robin Williams here saying ‘hey girl, what’s going on down there in New Zealand? I’m sending all my love to you, Jack, and Sophie. Mark this off your bucket list… Much love to you baby.”
Despite his struggles, it’s clear that Robin Williams will be remembered for his compassionate spirit and for knowing that one of the best ways to reach a person’s heart is to make them smile.
For Vivian and her family, it is hoped that his video message continues to bring them comfort during her battle with cancer.
