On Saturday, a 48-year-old woman named Sharon Hart was at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago for her third straight day of chemotherapy.
Sharon has leukemia, and obviously wasn't feeling well. After a visit, her 14-year-old son William called her on his cell phone and told her to look out the window.
On the top level of the parking garage, he'd carved out a message in the snow that said "Hi Mom", with the "O" in mom containing a smiley face. Which DID cheer her up a little bit.
William later decided to leave a message for OTHER patients. So along with his dad and uncle, he started adding the words "God Bless You All."
Unfortunately, he ran out of room, and could only fit in, "God Bless U." Though, it didn't matter, because it ended up inspiring a BUNCH of patients, doctors and nurses.
Late that night, one of the nurses snapped a photo of it, which is now all over Facebook -- its inspired thousands of OTHER people online.
William says he was originally just trying to make his mom happy, but then he started thinking about all the other families who were hurting, and wanted to do something for them too.
