Mikaela Shiffrin moved to tears after message from young cancer patient

10/13/2014

After winning her first World Cup race in December of 2012, American skiing sensation Mikaela Shiffrin met 11-year old Emma Lundell of Sweden, a young fan who was battling leukemia. The two posed for a picture together and Shiffrin wrote about the experience on her Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Now, almost two years later, Lundell is finished with her chemotherapy treatments. With some help from Swedish site SPORT-Expressen, Lundell made a video message for Shiffrin, updating her on her health. Shiffrin’s reaction is priceless.

Is it just me or does everything suddenly feel right in this world?
