A heartwarming video of people practising social distancing while welcoming a teenage girl from her last chemotherapy session is doing the rounds of the internet
When actor-director John Krasinski took to Twitter and asked people to share a good/inspiring story, one person posted the heartwarming video. Krasinski described it as” one of the greatest things” he’s seen.
Twitter user April Danz shared an inspiring story of how her friends and family organised a welcome party for her daughter who just returned home after her last leg of chemotherapy.
“My daughter, Coco, finished her final chemo treatment yesterday and our friends had a surprise social distancing welcome home parade for her!” she wrote in reply to Krasinski’s tweet.
Danz’s video shows her daughter Coco sitting in the car and delightedly looking on as she passes by a line of cars of people who had assembled to welcome her back. People stood with balloons and signs but maintained distance from her given her reduced immunity, that puts her at risk from Covid-19.
