So this story is very personal but definitely is a breathe of fresh air amid everything else going on in the world today.

My cousin Michelle just underwent major surgery and is on the way to recovery but was hoping for an autograph from the actress, Christy Altomare who stars as Anastasia in the Broadway production.

When friends waited after one of the shows and asked Christy for her autograph for my cousin, she offered to make a video message to brighten her spirits.

Tugs at your heart strings, doesn't it?  But definitely in a good way.
