"Just keep swimming"
Talia had the same kind of cancer my brother Ryan Reardon had. They were friends. They met at a hospital in New York. I miss them both. Nobody survives neuroblastoma.
@Sperminator, Hey, I just wanted to say that Im really sorry for your loss, and that it must really suck. I can't really relate, but I know how terrible it would be to lose one of my siblings, and I'm just really sorry.
@Sperminator, I'm sorry for your loss but I'm curious as to why she is on Ellen. I mean a lot of people have cancer, so why her? That is just a question because I am curious
@Tromboner, Because Talia has a charming personality and is incredibly brave like all children suffering from neuroblastoma. She knew that she was going to die but she remained positive and continued to love life. Talia represents all of the children suffering from this disease. She was a remarkable girl and I suppose Ellen wanted to share that with the world. RIP Talia and Ryan
@Tromboner, the type of pediatric cancer that Talia and my brother had. Almost nobody survives it due to limited treatment options and insufficient research funding.
@Sperminator, that makes sense. One more question if you don't mind: what is neuroblastoma?
@Sperminator, thanks. Again, I'm deeply sorry for your loss
@Tromboner, She was also quite famous for her makeup skills, and Ellen even made her an honorary Cover Girl.
@Sperminator, I'm sorry... Sperminator
@Sperminator, not yet
RIP Talia :(
@Pretty Sweet, lol
@Evil Bob, people like you make me sick.
@Evil Bob, you find that funny? That a little girl has died of cancer?? Shame
@Jimmie Rustler, What're you talking bout, it's hilarious.
@RandomSectionTagger, he is evil
@Jimmie Rustler, I guess I rustled your jimmies haha
@Evil Bob, what an asshole you are
@CriTiKa1, Comments like a dick and downvotes everyone... Yeah you won't have any friends here.
@Negan, Why do I want to be friends with people I don't know? You're a fvcking loser if you think people on here are your friends.
@Evil Bob, hope you die a painful,lonely,and slow death. Btw-we won't miss you
@Evil Bob, That kind of shìt you say is fvcked up and you shouldn't fun of people that are sick
@Evil Bob, dude.... Just.... No....
@funsizedpanda, kind of ironic saying it's harsh to say that then wishing a worse death upon them
@CriTiKa1, and you're a f@ggot for making fun of serious medical conditions you jackass
@Evil Bob, Are you so lucky that you've never lost anyone you love to cancer?
@funsizedpanda, He doesn't even know you. What you say doesn't affect anyone on here. You're words are as worthless as that little girl's life.
@CriTiKa1, that "little girl" put a light in the lives of many children with cancer! She gave people hope when their was none! She was amazing! Even when she was most sick she still posted videos telling people to never give up! And if you think that is worthless, I think I speak for everyone when I say don't comment on this app again! NO ONE WANTS YOU HEAR!
@i am a girl, If... if that's the way you feel then fine, I won't comment anymore. I'll delete my account and the app. Nah, I'm fvcking ya, ins keep fvcking with these fvckers cause it's fun.
@CriTiKa1, you are messed up! This was a real girl! Who made an actual impact in the lives of millions of people! That is more than you have ever done! You are a horrible person! I really hope you feel even a little bit bad about what you have said!!!
@i am a girl, Haha, no regrets. This is fun.
@CriTiKa1, you are a sick basterd!!!
@i am a girl, First time I someone calls me that... it hurts.
@captain cancer , did you read their comments?
@funsizedpanda, 1st by looking at my name you can assume I don't care people die all the while but you don't know them so you go unaffected I don't know the person they are on about therefore I don't care 2nd I wasn't defending them merely pointing out the irony
@Hideyoshi, you are a pathetic excuse for a human being. May you have each individual finger and toe chopped off, followed by having all your arms and legs cut off, once that is done, I hope you get thrown into the ocean, so as you drown, the salt causes your wounds great pain. Then, as you are on the brink of death, a shark eats you.
@CriTiKa1, dude, if you think a Girl with cancer dying, you are just a sick human. What if your mom had cancer? Would you laugh?cry? Don't be the dipshjt you are to get attention, it's not worth it
*Sheds tear* Man it's dusty in this room.
@the dumb genius, I love your dumb comments with your username I want to give you something that would please you because of the award of the best username ever and I really like and vid ejovmojsv odn ojvfenom oj
@The dUMB Genius, who put this bowl of onions here!
Is that a hipster or French guy crying?
@bamboozled, it's Ellen
@bamboozled, Ellen Degeneres. Among many other things, she was the voice of Dory (from Finding Nemo) who said "just keep swimming" which is why this post is so emotional.
@bamboozled, i thought it was freddy from scooby doo for a second
@JasonGodDamnGrace, I didn't even notice! That makes it sadder.
@bamboozled, I thought it was a lesbian
@Bonersaurus, you weren't wrong.
@PeenWentz, n she passed away.. that angel is resting in peace.. this is emotinal..
This might sound stupid but who is the girl and does she have cancer
@Insomnomnomnia, she died of cancer but was going through a lot. R.I.P
@Insomnomnomnia, her name is Talia Joy, she died i think about 6 months ago now from cancer. RIP
@Jimmie Rustler, Whoever down voted you is an asshole... Just sayin'.
@Insomnomnomnia, correct. It sounded insanely stupid
*Sheds one manly tear then watches Nemo 20 times*
Rest in peace, Talia :(
poor girl, rip and fvck cancer
I saw this episode, i was emotionally crippled then and I'm emotionally crippled now. RIP
This girl went to my little brothers school in Florida...sad that she passed but she did also win a film documentary award because the film was about her.
@Jimmie Rustler, I am so sorry, I downvoted you. Just know that I give you an upvote, I'm so sorry again
What a beautiful soul she was. RIP Talia
I almost died from the amount of adorableness that hit me with.
I'm gonna be brutally honest. Why are people saying RIP just for a girl who does decent makeup rather tha every cancer patient?
@ThatCoffeeBean, if you had one brain cell and knew your basic current events, you would know that this girl not only did makeup tutorials, but talked about her struggle and gave hope to those who were going through terminal cancer. She was more than her makeup tutorials, she was her message to the world that just because you have a terminal disease does not mean you have to give up. On the contrary, you have just keep swimming. Yes there are other patients with cancer, but presumably those are our friends, family and loved ones and we will pay our respects to them because we know that to them our words will mean more than anything to them than from strangers. She's different though, she decided to keep on "swimming" despite her disease unlike other cancer patients who fall into a depression and want nothing to do with the world. I know because I am a psychiatrist and have seen too many good people get diagnosed with a terminal disease and fall into depression. Because of her fame she
@ThatCoffeeBean, What I meant is not that she doesn't deserve it, I meant that people should mourn for all cancer patients, not just her.
@ThatCoffeeBean, became a symbol of every person's fight against cancer, because it's not just the patients fight, but their families' friends' fight as well. Being brutally honest, I live in Europe and know a good bit more about this girl than you. Find a soul, get it and grow a couple thousand brain cells and think about your "brutally honest" opinions.
@ThatCoffeeBean, if you read and digested my previous post, (hint: you didn't) you will see that "presumably those are our friends, family and loved ones and we will pay our respects to them because we know that to them our words will mean more than anything to them than from strangers."
@Theguydownunder, How was what I said unreasonable?
@Theguydownunder, I simply meant that I think people shouldn't idolize her. You're acting as if I'm being a douche for no reason.
@ThatCoffeeBean, how do you know whom we mourn for when we are not on this app? You don't know for whom our tears weep for once we close this app. If the rest of us have souls, then we confort those we love. That is what makes it unreasonable. We do our mourning in privacy, and every cancer patient is mourned in their fight.(alright not 100% but you know.)
@ThatCoffeeBean, well, we are already mourning for our lost ones and you expect more. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems you want us to idolizes every person that has parishes because of cancer. Yes it's sad that they've gone, but once they are gone, they are gone, no amount of worshiping, or what you want; mourning, is going to bring them back.
@Theguydownunder, That's not what I meant. I meant that I don't like that she is idolized. And yes, I understand that, I'm an atheist.
@ThatCoffeeBean, this has nothing to do with you're religion, would could be whatever you want to be and understand that in death, nothing physical brings them back. You are gravely mistaking idolatry for reverence and respect. Assuming you are American, why shouldn't you stop observing Martin Luther King day? Because he left a message and impacted millions. So did this girl. I don't know if my English isn't good enough that not making you understand.
@Theguydownunder, I mentioned my religion because you said that when somebody is dead, they're gone. I think I misinterpreted you. I apologize. And yes, you are right, but it's simply my opinion that I think she gets more recognition than she may deserve.
Is he crying semen?
I guess you guys can't take jokes about dead people lol
@Evil Bob, Go to h3ll. no one f@cks with people who have cancer. no one.
@isaac81, I do
Has anyone ever realized that the pictures for 'lie down' and 'try not to cry' should be switched?
