This is her latest email to try to get Oprah‘s attention. Can you see why I am in LOVE with this woman?? She is amazingly smart and witty. Love this email; it cracked me up and is so to the point and true. How can these people not listen??
WHY OPRAH AND STEVE JOBS SHOULD GO OUT ON A DATE
Dear Gayle, I am writing to you because I think you should set up Oprah and Steve Jobs on a date. And only BFF’s can make that happen. My name is Fernanda Borletti, mom of 5, all under 7. My life is easy and blessed. But my dear friend Maya’s life is not. Her beautiful 3-year-old son, Ronan, was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma in August 2010. Since then she and Woody have fought the toughest battle of their life, and portrayed it beautifully in her blog: www.rockstarronan.com. All you have to do is spend 5 minutes reading it to feel that something has got to be done.
Which brings me back to Oprah and Steve getting together. I go to bed at night thinking of all the things they could do. Shine a light on childhood cancer by doing a show, honoring the courage of mothers fighting for their children, getting iPads for all the kids going into Bone Marrow Transplants, and forced to spend weeks in isolation. I mean the options are endless. And I know they would do it.
This morning I decided that all I want is for them to go out on a date and let them, together, do what what they are know for best: just surprise us.
Can you help me?
With much admiration and gratitude,
Because no baby should have go through this….. There are no words for this picture and how I felt on this day.
This is the number of Rockstar Ronan blog views…. WordPress keeps track. I know I am only one person, but I am one person who is going to make a difference in Pediatric Cancer. If Oprah won’t listen, someone will. My dear sweet Charisma Carpenter, who is technically challenged (she admits this) has started up a Twitter account. She has been tweeting away and already has almost 15,000 followers. She has been tweeting non-stop about Ronan and his story, sending traffic our way. Thank you, CC. I thank the stars above everyday that fate brought us together that one summer day and our friendship bloomed and stayed strong. So cheesy, I know but it’s true. You have such a powerful voice and if anyone can get his story heard, it’s you. I love you so much.
His little voice deserves to be heard, as well as all of the other babies/kids who are voiceless out there. I am amazed and truly inspired by all of the people out there…. long lost friends, friends of friends, family, even strangers from France to Australia who are passing around Ro’s story. He will be heard and his story will be shared. Thank you EVERYONE. It is because of all of you helping me fight for him, that I promise you more awareness will come of his disease and other kinds of Pediatric Cancer. Keep spreading, sharing, and loving his story. He is worth it, he deserves it, and he will win this fight. I love you all!!!!
