I’m not sure how I missed this when Rosie was on The View, but someone mentioned it on Rosie’s blog, and I immediately YouTubed it.
I’ve always admired the things that Rosie O’Donnell does for children, and this was one surprise that was fun to watch.
Stephanie Shaffer was 12 years old when this segment was filmed. She was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at age 2. If you don’t know what it is, look it up. It’s a horrifying, life-changing illness that has no cure. Scientists have discovered the gene that causes it however, and there is hope that a cure will be found in this life time.
Watch Rosie, Stephanie, and the surprise cast of RENT sing “Seasons of Love.”
