A week or so ago, Reese was forwarded an email from a mom named Julie, whose son Will is a 4-year-old boy putting up a very tough fight against cancer in the Midwest.
The email read: “Legally Blonde is on the hospital TV and Will has been watching it, like four times a day. When he feels good enough to want something, he wants Legos and “The Pink Girl”. He finds comfort in it and loves the Pink Lady. So, if anyone knows Reese Witherspoon, and she would be willing to take a picture of herself holding a note that says “TeamWill”, or any other shout out that she can dream up, she would give a little four year old boy fighting cancer (and even more so his mom) a big pick-me-up. Hop on the bandwagon and join #Teamwill Reese?”
Reese read the email, and the THIS video is her response.
She also wrote a message on her Googe+ and Instagram accounts about the boy and the whole situation. Read below:
"This is for one of the strongest little four-year-olds I can imagine. Will – I hear that you’re fighting so hard and strong against cancer and that in the hospital you’ve been watching a lot of Legally Blonde and loving it. I hope it makes you laugh! I wanted you to know that I made this sign in your honor – and I’m sending a big big hug and my hope and prayers. Just know – I’m a really big fan of YOURS! PS anyone else – feel free to make your own sign for Will and post it with the hashtag #TeamWill so he can see it….I’m sure he’d love that! #TeamWill"
