Robin Williams’ Final Message Of Love To Young Mom Dying Of Cancer

How heartwarming. Before taking his own life on Aug. 11, Robin Williams sent a video message to a terminally ill young mother, 21, who hoped to meet the actor before she died. Vivian Waller’s husband recently released the personal message in hopes of showing the world ‘how awesome a person [Robin] was.’ Watch!

Vivian Waller, 21, is currently in an Auckland, New Zealand hospice suffering lung, bowel and liver cancer. When she was diagnosed in January, Vivian created a bucket list, which included the wish to meet Robin Williams. At the time, Vivian was too ill to travel to the United States to meet Robin, so he recorded a short video clip which he emailed to Vivian and her family a few months ago, before he died from an apparent suicide on Aug. 11. Prior to watching, we suggest you grab a box of Kleenex.

Robin Williams’ Final Message Of Hope Before His Death

“Hi Vivian . . . it’s Robin Williams here saying ‘hey girl what’s going on down there in New Zealand,'” the actor said in a short, but very sweet video, revealed by the Sunday Star Times. “I’m sending all my love to you, Jack and Sophie . . . knock this off your bucket list.”

Robin, who was a comedic genius, then starts “channelling Matthew McConaughey,” says “much love to you baby,” and blows her a kiss.

It’s certainly bittersweet to see this video. No matter what anyone was going through in life — even the actor, himself, who was battling depression and anxiety — Robin always went out of his way to make people laugh and feel happy. This personal message is proof of that.

Vivian’s other wishes included getting married, celebrating her 21st birthday, seeing her daughter, Sophie, celebrate her first birthday, and traveling to Rarotonga, which is the only wish Vivian was unable to fulfill.

Jack, Vivian’s husband, has yet to discuss Robin’s suicide with his wife. It’s a topic he finds too difficult to talk about.

Vivian is currently in care at Hibiscus Hospice. She’s still fighting, but Jack has resigned, after a series of failed attempts, to the fact that chemotherapy is no longer an option.

“Viv struggles with a lack of energy and it is quite difficult for her to concentrate,” he said. “We are just enjoying the time we have together. We take things a day at a time.”

Jack decided to release the video of Robin because “we love him, we want to show people how awesome a person he was.”

We totally agree with Jack — we love Robin. But awesome doesn’t even begin to describe the late actor.

Robin Williams Dies From An Apparent Suicide

Robin, 63, took his own life after years of battling depression and anxiety. He had also been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to Robin’s family and friends during this difficult time.
