This story is so sweet it brought tears my eyes! Growing up, Sian Pierre never felt grateful for his mom. They often struggled with money (she was a single mom) and this caused him to feel resentful. It wasn't until recently when his mom- Rebecca Danigelis- lost her job in hospitality and left him a voice-mail: "I got fired today. Just wanted to let you know. Call me."
Sian Pierre said, "That voice-mail is forever emblazoned in my mind. I started having conversations with her where she was like, "I don't want to wake up anymore. I have nothing to wake up for." He said, "And to hear your mom say that, it's soul-crushing."
He was already working on a completing a "bucket list" for his mom, but since losing her job, it took on a whole new meaning. Watch below as he helps her take a hip-hop dance class, join Instagram, milk a cow, take multiple roadtrips, and more! I am BEYOND inspired by this man and what he's doing for his mom. What an amazing symbol of love and gratitude!
