Despite being given just days to live, Marie Sowler has a lot to be happy about right now. Diagnosed with stage 4 leukemia, the 19-year-old's father and sister pitched in with a double bone marrow transplant that failed to work. Her last last wish? To meet Kellin Quinn, the lead singer for an indie band by the name of Sleeping With Sirens. Marie made a YouTube video revealing her big wish last Thursday. Thousands of shares, likes, and tweets got her message seen by the singer, who tweeted at her at 7:59 p.m. -- "How can we make this happen?"
And so just like that, the two set up a Skype meeting. Seriously, talk about the power of social media, eh? In a world where technology can often be a parent's biggest nemesis, it's got to be pretty cool for Marie's parents to see something so magical happen for their daughter.
