CLEVELAND — A woman in Ohio battling cancer received a special message of hope from her daughter.

Her daughter, Marie Schambach, wrote, “Mom, Be Brave” in some newly-fallen snow.

Schambach is a physician from Guatemala and said she had never even seen snow before. However, she was inspired to write the message to lift her mom's spirits.

Schambach was hoping other patients would see the message and feel like “somebody else cares.”

The Cleveland Clinic tweeted a picture of the message.

Soon messages to the mom poured in.

Schambach says she is happy that others are thinking of her mother.
