A message of love, carefully stamped out through inches of snow: What started as a special note from a teen to his his mom in the hospital, has become an image touching people around the world, according to WGN-TV.

In the middle of a cold and often gray winter, a bright spot where no one expected one.  After yet another weather event over the weekend, patients at Rush University Medical Center woke up to more than just a blanket of snow.

It wasn’t much. It is just a small gesture with a big message that touched this hospital from top to bottom.  Perhaps, a sign of hope and life. Some of the sickest inside needed it most.

“It keeps me up lifted in a way that nothing else really could, for me and others to feel better is huge,” says Shari Hart.

Last week 48-year-old Hart thought she had the stomach flu, it turns out she has acute myloid leukemia, cancer of the blood.  Last weekend her 14-year-old son, Will, called her to her hospital window at Rush University Medical Center for a surprise.

Will Hart says, “I just wanted to say hi to my mom and say, I love you.”
