Librarian Reaches Out to Very Ill Young Girl to Bring Her a Smile

A librarian at the Anderson Public Library wants to reach out to help bring a smile to a very ill little girl.  Sherry Noon, the youth and family services manager at the library, recently learned the story of Brooklyn Smith from her aunt, Jayme Smith, when at a US Marine Ball that Sherry’s son Marc invited her to attend.  Brooklyn, who is from northern Kentucky, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) just seven days after her fifth birthday.  According to Sherry, all Brooklyn has asked for is to make her smile.

Along with donations and support from many around northern Kentucky, many people from around the nation have been sending images and videos to make Brooklyn smile.  And this past Monday, Sherry dedicated one of her family story time events to Brooklyn by reading and singing on camera as a way to bring a smile to her.

We hope the video brings Brooklyn a smile as she continues to undergo treatments to save her life.  For more information about sending her smiles or donations, check out the SmileForBrooklyn Facebook page and the GoFundMe page.
