Thunder Bay saw the World-Wide Release of Hope
THUNDER BAY – It was a night of hope, celebration and tears. Capri Anderson Ruberto unveiled her new video ‘Hope’ to a packed house in Thunder Bay last night. The video is the story of how Capri, a teenager handled the news that her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer.
The video tells the story, and the song is a deep sharing of how Capri dealt with the issue.
At a packed house fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society last night at the Foundry the video produced at Imaginarium Studios in Thunder Bay was released to a world-wide audience. The evening was streamed live by NetNewsLedger using Telus LTE technology in an HD Livestream+© to a world-wide audience.
Story of a Young Woman and her Mom
Capri is a quiet, confident and talented young teen. Performing in-front of the packed house at The Foundry last night, the singer belted out a medley of amazing music carrying a stage presence that thrilled the audience.
“Capri’s my kid, but she is very special,” shared Nina Ruberto. “There were a lot of tears, right from the beginning of my battle”.
“Sometimes things happen for a reason,” added Ruberto. “I will do everything I can for breast cancer research,” stated Ruberto.
The night was emotional. Cancer has impacted the lives of many here in Thunder Bay. Cancer has taken the lives of thousands in our region. Hardly anyone has not been impacted by this terrible disease.
The message of celebration last night was one of hope. Cancer research has come a long way. People used to receive a diagnosis of cancer and it was viewed as a death sentence. Now with research and advanced treatment, the battle over cancer is slowly being won.
