Kenny and Alicia

Kenny Chesney is certainly not the first artist to pull a cancer patient up on stage with them during a concert.  But, that doesn’t make it any less special – for Kenny, the cancer patient, or the rest of Kenny’s fans.  We love seeing him do things like this. It’s awesome knowing that our favorite country artists really care about us.  And, Kenny recently showed all of us how much he cares when he pulled 22 year old Alicia Porack up on stage with him at a concert in Pittsburgh, Pa.

Alicia was diagnosed in April with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She shared her story with WGZR television. But even before she shared it with the television station, she began sharing it with the world, by documenting her journey with the rest of the world with her YouTube videos.  I have no idea what it would be like to be that courageous.  And, I so thrilled that she was at the stadium for Kenny’s concert.  I know this experience is one that she will never forget.

AliciaWhat a great story.  I have so much respect and admiration for Alicia. This young lady works a full time job, is a graduate student, and works out regularly at her local gym.  I think we could all learn a lot from her. I love that she is sharing all of this, with all of us.  She is an inspiration, for sure.

Alicia has been sharing her story on YouTube, since she was diagnosed.  She also has a GoFundMe page, and is close to making her goal. She is a very brave young lady, who has taken her story to social media to share it with all of us.  You can also follow her on Twitter @AliciaPorack. If you aren’t already following Country’s Chatter on Twitter, we’d love to have you. You will find us @countryschatter.

Alicia, the staff at Country’s Chatter would like to join the millions of others in wishing you the very best in the months ahead!
