After losing their mother to brain cancer in April, a Tennessee woman wanted to make her younger sister’s birthday special. But after only one person responded to their party invitations, strangers stepped in to show their support. Chloe Sexton, who’s 28, and Charlotte Sexton, age 8, lost their mother, Jennifer, on April 12 after battling brain cancer for 11 years. Chloe is now Charlotte’s legal guardian.
… Chloe sent the invites out early and heard from just one person. So she went to TikTok to express her frustrations. Her comments and inbox began filling up with messages of people offering to help decorate, to attend the party and asking what gift to bring for Charlotte.
… On July 9 Chloe was able to surprise Charlotte with guests, balloons, presents and more, thanks to the help of strangers. Some women helped decorate the house and assemble a balloon display and another brought her horse from Oxford, Mississippi, to give the kids pony rides at the party. A group called Mid South Jeeps organized a drive-by parade for Charlotte. About 25-30 jeeps drove by their house, some handing gifts out their window and other blaring birthday music.
