Storyline

In 1986, a young girl from Beloit, WI was about to celebrate her 7th birthday in the Boston Children's Hospital. After her teacher puts an article in the local newspaper requesting cards from the community, a complete stranger responds by sending her a handmade card every day for two and half years. The heartwarming bond that forms between them showcases the healing power of love, empathy and compassion. 30 years later, as she's about to undergo her 42nd (and hopefully last) surgery, Joni's optimistic strength is an inspiring example of the difference that a simple act of kindness can make.
