Maybe it’s me battling “the plague” as I’ve dubbed my awful sickness or the gray weather today or maybe cause I’m worried we’re headed into another Rob-draught or maybe it’s really because you’re awesome and confirmed it by making this ill girl’s Starlight Wish come true but I totally cried while reading this story over at LetMeSign:
My name is Sam, I am 14 years old and I have got Spastic Hemiplegia (Cerebal Palsy) which is like having a stroke… I can walk but not for that long so I use a wheelchair most of the time…
In November of 2009.. I had surgery, I think that it was 3 operations in 1 (I had my left hip taken out of the socket and put back in the right place, then I had bone taken out of my right hip and then I had my right foot broken and had the bone from my hip placed in my foot, then I had muscles in my legs and muscles around my hip cut.) As a result of the operation I couldn’t walk for about 3 months and then I had to go into rehab to learn how to walk again and stuff like that.
The Starlight Foundation offered me a starlight wish and I knew immediately that I wanted to meet Robert Pattinson (because I love the Twilight Saga), so I put my form in and waited a couple of months and my starlight spoke person said that my wish had been approved.. Then another couple of months went on and Starlight said “you know that maybe since you’ve waited such a long time for your wish and Rob might not come to Australia for a couple of years, do you want to change your wish?” I said “No, I’ll wait…”
Finally after waiting so long my wish came true on Friday, 6th of May 2011.
In the morning my mum, brother and I went into the city of Sydney and mum and I got our hair washed and styled at Toni and Guy hairdressers… The after that we went to the hotel where Rob was staying and I met him and got photos, autographs and he hugged me twice!
After that we went back to the hotel room that Starlight had booked for us to stay in for the night and waited for a couple of hours and then got ready to go and walk the red carpet at the Water For Elephants Premiere, which we went to and from in a limo. Then we went into the theatre and watched Water For Elephants. Finally to end the day, the limo picked us up and drove us back to our hotel.
I would just like to thank the Starlight Children’s Foundation as they organized everything for my family and I.. It was the best day of my life!
OH MY GOD!! Someone hand me some tissues and a hot cup of theraflu!!! This about killed me. Remember when I thought you should be more like Kellan you li and use your celebrity status for good? Well, you listened and mission accomplished Rob cause this is really awesome. Even though some celebs might not want to go something like this because it might be awkward or make them uncomfortable for a few minutes you totally dove in and made this girls wish a reality. I’m sure meeting you and having the evening out at the Water for Elephants premiere in Australia was a special moment and a night away from the every day struggle Samantha and her family goes through every day.
I’d also like to give a high five and snaps to Samantha for shooting for the moon with her wish. Forget a trip to Disneyland or meeting a Zoo Keeper, she went for ROBERT PATTINSON. Done and done girl! Dude and for telling the wish people you were fine with waiting because I think all the ladies here would agree with you that meeting Rob would be worth the dang wait! Love it. A lot.
Geez Rob, why must you play with our hearts like this? It makes thinking about a possible impending drought really heinous… THANKS A LOT!
Make a wish!
Does stuff like this just make you love Rob more and more? This kills me seriously, he’s so great! HAHA take that people who think we’re sad, cynical harpies! How much do we love Samantha for waiting it out to meet Rob?
Our internet game is ridiculous: LTT, The Forum, Twitter, The Store
As some of you know I will be leaving the states for a little vacay in Rob’s hometown and the city of Lights! WHOOHOOO!! This means UC will be all alone here and sad without me. HA. We will be busting in from time to time if Rob or Twilight emergencies happen but we will not be posting every day. So be mindful of that, write some letters to us/Rob/Twi/Whoever in the meantime and we’ll be back before you know it!
