Mom's Moving Vacation Photo Goes Viral

What may look like the typical summertime photo actually comes with a spectacular story. Last year, Ariane Herrholz Grabill and her family traveled to Florida where they enjoyed some surf and sun. The trip was extraspecial for Grabill's then-3-year-old son Aiden, who had just undergone chemotherapy. In the photo, which Grabil posted on the Today show's Facebook page, the two are enjoying a sunset walk on the beach. Today later shared her photo as part of it's #100HappyDays campaign, where it was liked more that 62,000 times and shared by more than 1,200 followers, inspiring readers to want to know more about the beautiful image. Grabil writes that the trip was, "just what the doctor ordered," and she may be right. A year later, Aiden's scans are coming back clean and he is enjoying a happy, healthy life at home. What more could you ask for from a Summer vacation?
