part of whose online space / identity has been hacked by some scumbag:
See further on this: Icaria’s “Unfreaking believable”
and some more here.
Her main YouTube channel is still up and running and active, at: http://www.youtube.com/user/taliajoy18
Once again, please do think about emailing the Ellen Show. Sample email message follows below:
I’m writing to you on behalf of someone else: Talia Castellano, a young videoblogger who is dying of cancer and whose last publicly-expressed wish (in her last video) is to do your make-up.
Talia blogs at Make-upisMYwig, under the name taliajoy18. The URL for her YouTube channel is: http://www.youtube.com/user/taliajoy18
and the video where she makes this wish is at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DJmjzCwalM
I don’t know Talia personally, but came across her story a couple of weeks ago through its coverage elsewhere online, at Jezebel.com: http://jezebel.com/talia-joy
I do hope you’ll think of her: even if you aren’t able to make her wish come true (sounds heinously soppy, but still), it would be nice if you could spare her a moment’s thought.
Go forth and email!
