(KANSAS CITY) — From getting Betty White on Saturday Night Live to social causes, if want to get something done, put it on Facebook. A Kansas City woman did.
She wants Oprah Winfrey to devote a show to childhood cancer. She's created a Facebook page to do just that.
The idea came because her friend and her friend's son are both fighting the disease. "I'm in remission. My breast cancer is done. I'm finished with treatments. Everything is done with my stuff, so that's a very happy thing. Brayden continues to fight," said cancer survivor Deliece Hofen.
"We know there's not a guarantee that Oprah's going to do a show. But I believe that as the army grows and more people come onboard, it's going to be harder and harder to ignore us," said Christine Barbour who started the campaign.
It has already has one effect.
The Facebook page has become a place to parents with sick children to connect and share stories. More than 44,000 people have already joined the page. You can too by clicking on the link at the left side of the page.
