Carley's story, as told through @kissandcrymovie is inspiring people in over 144 countries all over the world! And thanks to the film's success, many of those people are also discovering @carleysangels Foundation!
There is a very important lesson to be learned from all of this: All you need is love.
None of this would've happened if certain choices weren't made. Carley was dealt a terrible hand with cancer. She could've folded and given up. Instead, she chose to fight, to continue doing what made her happy, to smile. She chose love. And because of her choice, the spirits and the strength of those around her were lifted and they gave her the love and support that she needed to push on- The Allisons, John, Carley's friends. They could've folded when the going got tough, but they stayed by Carley's side. They could've abandoned the foundation after Carley's passing but they carried on and through their work they built it into the global foundation it is now. They chose Carley's Angels. They chose love.
@sarahfisher could have chosen not to go through with making "Kiss and Cry" and portraying Carley because it would be too difficult. Too close to home. Too painful. Instead, Sarah chose to be brave. She knew Carley's story was worth telling. She knew her spirit would touch people. Sarah did it because she loves Carley. She chose love.
Finally we have the viewers themselves. Upon learning that the film touched upon cancer, they could've chosen to choose something easier to digest, mindless entertainment. They watched the whole film and even through all the tears, they were deeply moved because they connected with Carley's motto, "Always Smile", they connected with Carley and John's relationship. They learned about Carley's Angels because they wanted to make a difference. They chose love.
You have a choice in everything that you do in life. Not every choice will be easy. Some will be painful and sad. No matter what, choose love ❤
