Ryan Seacrest Makes A Moment Of A Lifetime In A Race Against Time [AUDIO]

December 13, 2011 8:05 am

KIISmas Giving on “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” has made miracles come true for families in need that deserve a little extra love this holiday season.  Sara from Los Angeles, a tutor for a 13-year-old girl named Hana, wrote an endearing letter about Hana’s fatally genetic disease called progeria that dramatically accelerates aging in children. In the letter below, she describes that it’s a “race against time” for her, as the average life span of this disease that only 10 people in the US have is 13-years-old.

The one wish Sara feels would make Hana’s dreams come true is if she were able to speak to her favorite singer Selena Gomez. Thanks to Ryan, he hopes to get a hold of Selena so that the singer who keeps her strong throughout her struggles can connect with her. In addition, Ryan’s giving both Hana and her brother Howard two Kindles and the mother Kyung $1000 cash to spend on her family. Read the heartwarming letter below and listen to the very emotional conversation up above. Through KIISmas Giving, we are making each and every moment count this holiday season.

Sara from Los Angeles sent us an email….

Dear Ryan,

I hope this letter finds you in time…for time is what we don’t have much of.
It is a true honor for me to share with you, the lives of three “real-life” angels- Hana, Howard, and their incredible mother, Kyung.

Hana is 1 of only 10 children in the U.S. that has progeria; a fatally rare genetic disease that dramatically accelerates aging in children. Children with progeria age 8 to 10 times faster than normal children. Their average life expectancy is 13-years-old and the absolute worst part of this disease is that there is no cure. Hana just turned 13 this past September 8th and everyday has been a race against time for Hana.

Howard is a 14-year-old boy who embodies the best of both humor and heart; always putting others first; I always see Howard making sure that his sister Hana and his mother eats first before he even takes his first bite…it truly is the little things in life that mean the most.

The “queen of the angels” is Hana and Howard’s mother, Kyung; a hard-working single mother who carries the world on her shoulders; always smiling, always giving thanks for everything…

Hana’s is one of my students, but in truth, she and her family are the real teachers; each of them teaching me the most important lesson in life: TO MAKE EACH MOMENT COUNT.

Ryan, it would be a beautiful blessing if you can PLEASE help this family with a little “KIISMAS Giving.” This is a family that doesn’t expect anything but deserves everything.
