After winning her first World Cup race in December of 2012, American skiing sensation Mikaela Shiffrin met 11-year old Emma Lundell of Sweden, a young fan who was battling leukemia. The two posed for a picture together and Shiffrin wrote about the experience on her Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Tonight I met a young Swedish girl Emma Lundell....http://t.co/rF961N5q— Mikaela Shiffrin (@MikaelaShiffrin) December 20, 2012
Now, almost two years later, Lundell is finished with her chemotherapy treatments. With some help from Swedish site SPORT-Expressen, Lundell made a video message for Shiffrin, updating her on her health. Shiffrin’s reaction is priceless.
Is it just me or does everything suddenly feel right in this world?
