So, it would seem that our little Charlotte is getting famous!
Here is a link to the video clip of Charlotte on Channel 3 news last Monday.
There is also an article available here on their website.
I was a little disappointed at first, because I got the impression that that was as far as we were going to get with the media. Granted, I shouldn't have felt that way because it was by some sheer miracle that we captured attention anyway.
How many small town people do you know that make the news? We just have a cancer story, like twelve thousand other kids a year.
So, if you saw the video, I'm sure you are curious about the quilt. Made by Mr. Gentilli's class, the quilt is supposed to specifically appeal to babies... Does it?
See for yourself:
It said Charlotte won't be eligible for life insurance through them for at least ten years.
To me, it sort of feels like she commited a crime by getting cancer, and the punishment is that her life is pretty much worthless for ten years.
I can't wait to see what the quote is going to be when she does qualify.
Channel 3 is going to be meeting with us- possibly this Sunday- to continue our segment.
We owe them an awful lot of gratitude, it seems.
The executive producer emailed me this afternoon to tell me our story was in the top ten most popular on Tuesday.
One news station down, millions to go!
Bring it on!
We are ready.
