In the caption of the post, Seth Riggs stated: “Every night the children got on stretchers, so sick that they could barely keep their heads up. Michael knelt on the stretchers and put his face next to them, so he could take a picture with them, and then gave them a copy to remember the moment. I couldn't take it. I was in the bathroom crying. Children cheered up in his presence. If that gave them a few more days of energy, it would be worth it for Michael ”.
