因癌症失去母亲的孩子在她的生日聚会上收到了一份回复. 然后陌生人聚在一起帮助她庆祝

After losing their mother to brain cancer 在四月份, a Tennessee woman wanted to make her younger sister’s birthday special.

但在只有一个人回应了他们的聚会邀请之后, strangers stepped in to show their support.
Chloe Sexton, 28, and Charlotte Sexton, 8, lost their mother, 珍妮佛, 在四月 12 after battling brain cancer for 11 年份, Chloe told CNN on Saturday.
      Chloe is now Charlotte’s legal guardian.
        I sent the invites out early and I heard nothing back except from one person,” Chloe said. “It upset me that I couldn’t give her the birthday I wanted to.
          Charlotte had to transfer to a new school in the middle of the school year after losing her mother. Her new classmates and parents were aware of her mother’s death, Chloe said.
          So that’s when Chloe took to TikTok to express her frustrations.
          That video has over 9 million views and more than 30,000 comments as of Saturday.

          Chloe said her comments and inbox began filling up with messages of people offering to help decorate, to attend the party and asking what gift to bring for Charlotte.
          This was the first time I saw people put action behind their empathy,” Chloe said. “The overwhelming support made me feel like not just a face online, but that I mattered, and my story mattered to people.
          在七月 9 Chloe was able to surprise Charlotte with guests, balloons, presents and more, thanks to the help of strangers.
          Some women helped decorate the house and assemble a balloon display and another brought her horse from Oxford, 密西西比州, to give the kids pony rides at the party.
          Throughout the day people stopped by, even if only for 30 分钟, from all over. At one point there were about 20 kids in the house, Chloe said.
          A group called Mid South Jeeps organized a drive-by parade for Charlotte as well. 关于 25-30 jeeps drove by their Memphis house, some handing gifts out their window and other blaring birthday music.
          "The overwhelming support made me feel like not just a face online, but that I mattered, and my story mattered to people,&报价; Chloe Sexton told CNN.

          She kept asking me ‘Is this all for me?'” Chloe said. “There was so much excitement, her eyes were so big.
            Not only was this her first birthday without her mom, but this was her first birthday party ever, Chloe said. Charlotte has never had a party like this as her mother battled cancer for most of her life.
            Charlotte did say to me ‘I think mommy would’ve loved todayafter the day was over,” Chloe said.
