Yesterday we brought you the story of Drake Earl, the little boy who had emergency surgery on a cyst in his brain this past week. Drake is a huge fan of Star Wars so we created a Star Wars post for the little Rebel Leader.
The post blew up far beyond theCHIVE and the outpouring of support was almost overwhelming, we're still sifting through the emails and press inquiries. Drake's story on theCHIVE is just getting started, more on that soon.
I'll let his mother, Mallory, describe the scene:
"I couldn't believe it when I got home from work and saw the post and how many comments there were . Unbelievable! Never thought he would get so many comments, I'm pretty speechless! Drake thanks you all so much and loves the post. He can't stop watching the videos and we are going through every page of comments. SO awesome, can't begin to tell you how much it's appreciated!
p.s. Fyi - Drake said his favorite part of the post was the video when you were talking to him, John, and the most hilarious was when the Indiana Jones music started playing. I can't tell you how many times we watched the video.
I dont think I can even express through e-mail how awesome this has been and how great the Chivers have been and all the awesome comments. The Chive is definitely the best website not just probably!"
