How nice is this? Kaley Cuoco connected with a terminally ill superfan, and their sweet exchange is making us go for the tissues. Find out more about their adorable FaceTime conversation!
We knew we liked 29-year-old Kaley Cuoco. The Big Bang Theory star made a cancer-stricken 13-year-old girl very happy when she FaceTimed with her young fan on May 6. After hearing about sweet Nicole and her Big Bang fandom, Kaley jumped at the chance to make her new friend feel a little better, and least for a little bit of time! We salute you, Kaley!
Kaley Cuoco’s Terminally Ill Fan: Their FaceTime Conversation
What a special moment for both Kaley and Nicole! The actress first came across her number one fan through friend, fashion designer Nikki Lund, who found Nicole’s message on Instagram and immediately sent it to Kaley.
Nicole’s Instagram stated that she was sadly in the last stages of her life due to cancer, and she was hoping that the entire The Big Bang Theory cast might brighten her day with a video message. She got one better — a private conversation over FaceTime with Penny herself — Kaley! Bazinga!
Kaley passionately spoke about their encounter to US Weekly.
“When I heard Nicole’s story and how much she loved Big Bang Theory, I just had to connect with her in some way,” Kaley said. “Through her amazing family, and help from people like Nikki and others, we were able to FaceTime and send little videos straight to Nicole — her two thumbs-up was a sure sign that, at least for a moment, she was happy. She is lucky to have such an amazing family and I felt honored to share in such a wonderful moment.”

Selfless Kaley apparently stayed up all night and waited for the video call, as Nicole and her family are located in the UK. And now she’s getting the rest of her Big Bang cast members to message Nicole, too! Your wish is their command, Nicole!
Check out one of the sweet conversations, posted by Nikki, in which Kaley cutely informs Nicole that she may not recognize her since she’s recently dyed her hair pink.
Kaley was obviously joking, because everyone and their mother noticed when she debuted her cotton candy pink pixie cut on April 28. Blondes have more fun, but could Kaley look any cuter?
The new ‘do, was debuted in a flurry of Instagram selfies (what other way is there?), and we really think the shade makes her beautiful green eyes pop.
HollywoodLifers, were you as touched as us by Kaley’s FaceTime session?
