  • R.I.P. Litlle girl. You were and still are a great example for all of us. May God be with you. "You'll never walk alone!"

    This episode was amazing. I saw it this week on Belgian telivision. It's soo hard to see what this little girl had to go through. What she had to fight against, it's just unfair. Knowing this little girl past away last Christmas makes it even harder. This girl was amazing. Even knowing she went through the toughest things you can imagine, she still placed the others their happiness in the first place. She never gave up fighting, but she lost the fight :(. R.I.P. Boey, may God be with u. There's one thing you got to remind Boey, "You'll Never Walk Alone!" You were and are still a great example for this world. We love you little girl, we love you with all our heart!

    Rest In Peace little girl, May God be with you!moreless
  • The team builds a new and safe house for a girl with cancer and her family.

    I love to watch this series, and usually my husband and I sit down to watch the show together every sunday on TV3 here in Norway. We call this shown our "crying-show", since it somehow makes both of us cry every week. This week was no different from the usual - we cried our eyes out over that little wonderful girl who was fighting cancer while she was reaching out for other children in the same situation.

    I was so sad to learn that she lost the battle in december of 2007.

    The house they built was, once again, a dream-house for anyone. I love how they put so much love, care and personality into all parts of the house - just like we dream of doing in our own house. This episode was amazing and wonderful - exactly why we watch this show!moreless
  • Simply amazing!

    Simply the most touching episode I've seen so far. You guys are doing exceptionnal work bringing hope to all those people. In a world where we are too centered upon our own selves, you show that there is still goodness out there. Keep up the good work and keep bringing a touch of relief in the lives of all those families. I've never been a fan of "reality" shows, often showing the vanity and lack of humanity. You took the concept and reshaped it into something we don't see enough of: helping one another. It has nothing to do with personnal gain but everything to do with the best qualities one can express. Thank you so much!moreless
