Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting Grants Terminally Ill Fan Her Wish
By Emily Krauser
Cue all of the feels.
Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting gave a terminally ill fan the ultimate gift on Wednesday, simply by saying hello.
Fashion designer Nikki Lund stumbled upon an Instagram post about a British girl named Nicole. The 13-year-old is battling cancer, and her big wish was to get a message from the cast of her fave TV show,The Big Bang Theory.
As soon as Lund asked, Cuoco-Sweeting jumped in to help."When I heard Nicole's story and how much she loved Big Bang Theory, I just had to connect with her in some way," the 29-year-old actress told Us Weekly.
Another pal, actress Cassie Scerbo, also worked hard to make the touching video happen. The cutest part is Cuoco-Sweeting telling Nicole that if she doesn’t recognize her, it’s just because of the light pink hue in her hair. So sweet!
"Through her amazing family, and help from people like Nikki and others, we were able to FaceTime and send little videos straight to Nicole -- her two thumbs up [were] a sure sign that, at least for a moment, she was happy,” Cuoco-Sweeting said to Us Weekly. "She is lucky to have such an amazing family, and I felt honored to share in such a wonderful moment."
Lund called Cuoco-Sweeting "an angel" and "so thoughtful… what a gift to make a dream come true for Nicole," and Scerbo was equally as enthusiastic about her friend. "[Kaley,] you are a
true legend. Thank you so much for your optimism and radiance. You are
such a kind soul," the Make It or Break It star wrote. "I can't wait to post Nicole's reaction!"
Jerseylicious star Tracy DiMarco also chimed in. "This is incredible, what an incredibly [sic] thing for Nicole to have," she commented on Scerbo's post.
Now, Cuoco-Sweeting is said to be getting her fellow Big Bang castmates to send videos to Nicole. Fingers crossed!
Garth Brooks also had a moment with a cancer-stricken fan recently. Watch the video of their in-person meet up on the set of Entertainment Tonight below.
