Storyboard Text

  • Hi everyone! My name is Vivian Nguyen. This is a story about a significant event that occurred in my life. A story of when I lost my friend, Maily, to brain cancer.  Despite the sorrow that you can expect from this story, I have learned a valuable lesson from losing a friend so early in my life.
  • 2018
  • Maily was my best friend. She brought nothing but happiness and joy into to my life. I loved her good sense of humor and the kindness that she brought to me and others around her. I've also never met anyone that possesses such a positive attitude like she did.
  • Me
  • Maily
  • At the age of 8, Maily was diagnose with DIPG, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. It is the worst of all possible brain stem tumors and affect children mostly between ages 5 and 10. 
  • I heard about what Maily had to go through from this brain tumor. Many radiation sessions, back-to-back doctor appointments, and being hospitalized unexpectantly for several hours. It was hard for me to listen to all the pain and suffering that she was going through at such a young age. It was like I was going through it too.
  • When I heard about what Maily was dealing with, all that consumed me was sadness. I was only 10 years old but I had a slight idea of what cancer was capable of doing to a person. Although Maily was dealing with such pain from this tumor, she remained strong and resilient. She also had a more positive outlook in life than me.
  • This is such a cruel world. How could this happen to such an amazing girl?!
  • Viv! Please don't be sad! We should have funnn!
  •  I was sad at home, filled with sorrow at school, and was constantly heart-broken. 
  • Maily consistently smiled at home, had fun at school, and was always in a good spirit. Even when fighting cancer.
