LOS ANGELES (LALTE) – Hana Hwang was visited by Selena Gomez at Los Angeles Children’s Hospital in December following assistance by Ryan Seacrest. This weekend, Los Angeles Children’s Hospital issued a thank you, again, to Selena Gomez and her fans for their reaction to a recent video by Hana Hwang in January.
In a news statement last Friday, Los Angeles Children’s Hospital thanked Selena Gomez and her fans for their reaction to Hana’s recent video. “We have been getting a lot of response from Hana’s video to @selenagomez” said the Children’s Hospital. “Thank you all for sharing this amazing story”.
The video, a narrative by Hana, uploaded on January 12 has been seen by nearly ninety-thousand viewers. Hana’s family in the video caption issued a thank you to the hit singer, and also her mother. “To Selena’s mother, Mandy, thank you for raising such a remarkable daughter.” As to Selena, the Hana family told news “Selena, not matter what you go through in your life, if you have love and family, you’re already a superstar. Never forget that you have made a difference to us and to the world.”
Hana recorded her video narrative for YouTube in January following a December visit by Selena Gomez. Hana, a 13-year-old progeria patient, “wanted to share the following message of appreciation with the pop star and her family”. “Thank you for showing us your hearts” said the family.
Last winter, Sara Kim, Hana’s tutor, first nominated Hana for the KISSMAS Giving campaign on L.A.’s 102.7. But Ryan Seacrest personally reached out to help Hana, by contacting Selena Gomez directly and tell her about Hana’s story. Within days, Selena visited Hana bedside in Los Angeles last December, to “fulfill Hana’s lifelong dream”. For more about Hana’s story, click HERE.
