"As the concert comes to a close, and the house lights come up, I make my way to the lobby in hopes that I may thank those as they leave for coming and sharing this special night with us. As I go through the doors to the lobby, I quickly realize the audience hasn’t left the building, almost everyone has gathered in the lobby. There is love all around, as I see people hugging each other, laughing together, and trying to keep this moment alive for as long as they can. A young woman, who I do not know, runs to me and asks if she can hug me! As we hug, she thanks me and tells me she is a cancer survivor. She has been so moved by tonight’s experience she wants to join our Hearts of Hope group as a volunteer so she can help bring hope to others like herself. WOW!"
