Literally: nothing, and from her words you can see she feels no better than anyone else. Figuratively: she's a special person to a lot of people, they wanted to give her a warm welcome home. You can't turn that into negativity. She's an amazing person and what everyone did was beautiful and touching.

She's a very positive caring person with lots of people that care about her. Nobody cares when trolls get cancer - like yourself.

What makes Toni different? Nothing other cancer patient goes thru except her resolve, sunny disposition and youthful spirit that inspired many hundreds of people to show up and welcome her home from a few weeks of treatment down in NC.

Okay, so far I got from responses to others that she is a girl with cancer. What kind of cancer? How old is she? Why is she being treated in another state?

She is a 23 year old from Chesapeake, who has lung and brain cancer. Her doctors basically can't do anything else for her medically, so they sent her home. She was getting treatment in North Carolina at Duke & UNC. Doctors told her she has about two months of life left. Earlier today, when they arrived in Charleston on their way home, there were groups of people at every exit between there and 29th St. cheering and wishing her well, and there was a huge group of people in Chesapeake. You can find "Toni's Team" on Facebook, and there are a few videos of all the support she got on her way home on YouTube!

I remember her from school. Positive and caring aren't two words I would have used. Perhaps her cancer has given her enlightenment because I did like the fact that she mentioned that she was only one person with cancer in a sea of millions. Hopefully she makes a recovery and then all the tri-state area fake do-gooders can go back to bashing gays or poor people.

Actually, what I said was nice. You must have that Chesapeake "edumacation" since you lack basic comprehension. That Jill woman sure likes being on camera. I actually acknowledge that there is more than one person with cancer, which is why I don't join the crowd in welcoming home 1 person when hundreds come back from treatment and go through Huntington everyday. I bet you don't even contribute to the American Cancer Foundation.

You poor, poor negative souls. You'll start to feel so much better if you clench your jaw when you're about to say something mean or sarcastic.

Wow. This site is just like high school. It's perfect for all the looser anti-trendy trendies to do nothing for anyone but themselves and make fun of all the "do-gooders" who actually "do something" other than complain about everyone and everything.

Got to agree with you on this one. What about the countless others, even children, who'll be lost to cancer this year? Where's their fanfare?

Will all the people who bought t-shirts and made signs even remember this woman's mother after the parade's over, Toni's gone and folks have moved on with their lives?

Not saying it wasn't a nice gesture, but what will you do long-term to help those dying of cancer?
yup

I've had tons of loved ones die of cancer, from 8yrs old up.
They never had parades.
Its all about who wants to be noticed and get handouts and sympathy from everyone as if they are the only ones affected by this horrible disease.

Toni has a lot of friends that wanted to show support and they showed it and posted it every where like Facebook and it kept going and going. It's not that the fact of yes there r others that have cancer they did this to show her they love her. I went and I cried it hit close to home for me my aunt died from lung and brain cancer. And no thy did not have nothing like what they did for Toni but I'm not being negative over it.

I feel sorry for all the loved ones you've lost, but you're completely wrong. What started out as family & friends welcoming her home turned into a whole bunch of people who hate to see a young person suffering. Social media spread the word like wildfire. NO ONE STARTED THIS TO GET ATTENTION OR HAND-OUTS. It's absolutely sickening that you would take a situation like this and turn it into something so negative.

Here's the thing: if you or your family wanted to welcome home someone in this same way, I'd be willing to bet the community would come together AGAIN to welcome that person too!! Don't blame everyone else for your misfortune or the fact that you didn't come up with such a great idea. At least Toni didn't throw herself a pity party like you hateful people are doing!

The bottom line is that everyone needs to pray for Toni AND all the others who are battling this disease. I pray that God can provide a miracle, or at least ease her suffering in these last few months of life.

I think it's good that so many people can come together in the fight against cancer. But what about everyone else around here that has it too, many of them being much worse off than her? I'm not trying to be mean, rude, or disrespectful when saying this either. I think there should be something in support of all the fighters, survivors, and the ones to come. Many people have been all up for supporting her but have failed to even pay attention to their very own family members that are going through the same thing and has no one there for them. Remember the others!
