These days, the world can be a pretty sad place. It’s a place dominated by negative news headlines that focus more and more on the and insane and negative of the world, instead of the good.
Just these last few weeks, the headlines in the news would lead you to believe we are entering some sort of apocalyptic world very soon. Hell, we might be.
So in the meantime, it’s good to hear some positivity to balance it all out y’know, to flush out the negativity. The yin and yang of life. Six-year-old Jimmy Spagnolo has battled an aggressive brain tumor since he was a baby.
This past year doctors at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center informed Jimmy that his tumor shrunk to the point where he may no longer need treatment.
Little Jimmy, who was so excited after hearing the amazing news, rang the “ceremonial bell” and did a celebration dance that included, but was not limited to, lifting up his shirt and slapping his stomach, the running man, and doing the rocky dance (raising his fists over his head in celebration).
The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center shared his celebration video with their commentary.
“The bell signifies so many emotions—it can signify the sound of tears, strength, fear, courage, doubt, satisfaction, relief, and happiness all coming through as one as people around them cheer this accomplishment. And the people around young Jimmy in the video—including his mom, Lacie—certainly felt the weight of the moment. To share moments like these and feel the connection in the room with everyone is electrifying.”
Good luck Jimmy!
