Game of Thrones" Cast Makes Dying Woman's Dream Come True
Game of Thrones cosplayers around the world united to make an elderly dying woman’s wish to meet the cast of the hit HBO cable entertainment show come true. 88-year-old Claire Walton’s final wish was to see the Battle of Winterfell and possibly meet members of the show's cast. Though her health was deteriorating, she made it through the episode — she died on the Monday afternoon after the much-anticipated episode aired. It all started when HopeHealth Hospice reached out to Kendra Malizia for help.
She confirms the life ending goal by telling the story of how it all began, “that's like her dying wish is just to meet Jon Snow, or really any of the characters during the Battle of Winterfell.” Travis Sigler, another cosplayer “Once the story got out it was like, OK, how can we make a difference? How can we help Claire see this episode or at least make it to that final night you know?” “The executive director asked me as a personal favor. She said, "you're really nerdy, like you must know someone who can dress up as Jon Snow and come and visit this old woman who's dying. She just loves that show she's a super fan…." I almost gave up because I was so discouraged by the response, that I couldn't find anyone who was willing to go visit this 88-year-old whose only wish was to meet someone from Game of Thrones before she died. So, I kind of just lit the first beacon, which was posting on a couple of cosplay sites and just using hash-tagging really was what I think was the first thing that people grabbed onto. And before I knew it, my message had been shared over a thousand times. People were just rallying. All the banners raised, I ended up getting dozens and dozens and dozens of messages from people all over the world.”
Many other Game of thrones cosplayers also sent ispiring feel good best wishes to Walton for the love of entertainment.
