A Message For a Sick Mom Becomes So Much More

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a son's inspiring message to his mom spreads to the larger community.  CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

You may remember this – a massive message carved into the snow on top of a parking structure at Rush University Medical Center reads "Hi mom, god bless you," with a smiley face in the "o" for good measure.

In a hospital room above,  Shari Hart was undergoing leukemia treatment. 

The message was the idea of her 14-year-old son, Will.

"I thought it would be nice for my mom to see it and for others to feel happy," he says.

So, that's good stuff for a son and a mom, but even better stuff for the rest of the patients!  It turns out, the message cheered everybody up.

“It was a big, proud mommy moment,” Hart says.
