Nerdfighter gets her final wish

Maggie and her family.
On Saturday, Maggie Philbrook, a nerdfighter fighting cancer, passed away. However, she did not die before receiving her ultimate wish: to see The Fault In Our Stars movie.

Movie director, Josh Boone, announced on Sunday that Maggie had been one of the first people to see the movie. The Make-A-Wish foundation and 20th Century Fox were able to accommodate Maggie and four of her closest friends to view the movie in a hospital conference room. After the movie, Maggie talked with Josh, via video-chat, and let him know she enjoyed it.

However, a few moments later her health worsened. Maggie died just before 5 a.m. on Saturday.
It makes us happy that her final wish was able to come true.

We wish her family and friends the best and strength during this difficult time.

Rest in awesome, Maggie. DFTBA.
