Oprah, a KC Facebook group of 44,550 is begging you to do a show on childhood cancer

Kansas City's Christine Barbour's Facebook page has yet again proven two timeless truths. One: Nobody wants little kids to have cancer. They're kids. Two: We all regard Oprah as a benevolent and unknowable deity.

Barbour is sharing this knowledge with the 44,550 people who've clicked the Like button on her page, "Oprah Please Do a Show on Childhood Cancer -- Our Kids Need Your Help."



Cancer pages typically spring from some pretty sad stories -- what with them being about cancer and all -- and Barbour's endeavor is no different. Barbour told KMBC Channel 9 that she started the page after both her friend, Deliece Hofen, and Hofen's son Braydon, were diagnosed with cancer. Hofen is in remission but Braydon recently relapsed. If you click on the page just to show them a little support, it'd be a good thing.

Though the page has exploded, there's still no word yet from Oprah's people. Considering it's her last season on network television, Oprah's booking agents are probably wading through oceans of potential stories right now. Hopefully, Barbour's pleas reach them. If they have to bump Johnny Depp, it's a good trade.
