Six-year-old Nathan Storey is aware of how cancer affects families and lives, and determined that he could personally make a difference for those on a cancer journey through a wish and a song. His offer to those interested in helping him is to play an original tune on his harmonica—for a donation of a dollar per performance. He plays his songs for free for those who have cancer.
Karen Morrison, President/CEO of Gilda’s Club said, “Some might think the determination of a young child to make a difference is cute and sweet, but not measurable or significant, but Nathan's result shows otherwise. She reflected, “This boy’s aspiration to make the world a better place is inspirational to all of us who work at Gilda’s Club.”
His dad, Jim, helped Nathan share his message through a video that was posted on Gilda’s Club Louisville’s Facebook page. Some supporters, inspired by his goal, have contributed more than his asking price.
