-Hi. I’m Justin Baldoni,
and I’m the director of a show called “My Last Days,”
这是一部 讲述一群将要离世之人的 系列纪录片
which is a documentary series about people who are dying,
but who refuse to give up on life.
这位是…… 卡拉 米奇 尼克 塔拉 维基
And this is… -Kiela. -Mikey. -Neko. -Tara. Viki.
-And we all have something in common.
We all love a young man named Christopher Aiff,
and we’re here to ask for your help.
-My name is Christopher Aiff.
I’m 21 years old, and I’m living with osteosarcoma.
Doctors say I have six months to two years left to live,
but really, they have no idea.
While this has been the most incredible two years,
it has also been the most exhausting, and I am tired.
I’m really tired in a way
that I don’t think sleep can recharge me.
I’m tired in my bones,
and I think maybe it’s okay to start letting go.
-The last two years have been really intense.
They’ve brought us together,
but they’re coming to their end,
and Chris has acknowledged it’s almost the end.
And this is why we decided to make this video.
-Day by day, things are starting to change
and starting to get noticeably harder.
And for Chris to be able to see this video
and to be able to feel some love coming back at him
would be immeasurable.
-Chris is the one that basically brought us all together,
and that is what I’ve learned from him.
It’s just important to be happy,
and it’s important to keep the people you love around you at all times
-He has a lot of guts,
and I always admired that in him.
From a very early age on,
he would stand up to anybody that did anything wrong,
and he would voice his opinions, and he really grew
and became that person that takes care of others
and has this amazing, strong character.
That’s how I see my son.
-The decision to be positive
is not one that disregards or belittles
the sadness that exists.
It is rather a conscious choice to focus on the good
and to cultivate happiness and genuine happiness.
Happiness is not a limited resource.
We do have the power to tap into our own happiness.
And when you apply that perspective,
you can kind of increase your happiness
through things that are difficult.
-We each got tattoos of Chris’ message,
“Happiness is not a limited resource,” at different times,
because of how Chris has affected us all differently,
but in the same way.
-Do not tell my mom.
Chris Chris 我只是来看看
Chris, Chris, I came to visit.
We’re not doing this.
-You can lie to my mom.
When I went through troublesome times
and I didn’t believe in myself,
Christopher Aiff was always that person.
He was there behind me, pushing me forward,
告诉我 我可以 我应该相信自己
telling me that I can do it and I should just believe in myself.
I love him so much for that.
As sad as the situation is that we’re talking about now,
while you can see there’s always a smile on one person’s face,
when we’re all smiling, it’s because of the influence
and the impact that Chris has had on each of our lives.
– 我认为 我们都将用自己的方式
-I feel like we’re all gonna move, like, in our own way,
at our own pace, and I don’t need him,
but I so badly want him around.
他会的 你知道的 他会陪在我身边
And he will be. You know, he will be.
But I’ve had to let go of that.
你知道吗 这段日子 一直都像是这样
You know, this whole time, it’s just been,
“我需要他 我需要他 我需要他”
“I need him, I need him, I need him,”
and he accepts that you’re on a journey,
and he accepts you and loves you already.
And the rest is just —
你知道吗 你感觉大受鼓舞 去做更好的自己
you know, you feel inspired to be the better you.
-It’s interesting as a mom
说出你正努力成为 孩子的榜样 这很有趣
to say that you’re trying to live up to your child’s example,
but that’s kind of the situation I’m in.
-I have been in the times
I didn’t have the intense times with him
that I would have liked to, jobs, et cetera, et cetera,
to be out of town, but I feel very close to Chris,
and I think there are not a lot of words with the two of us,
and there’s a big, deep understanding between us,
我觉得 在这点上 我真的很感激
I think, and I appreciate that very much.
– 很幸运 我可以成为他的母亲
-I’ve been very lucky to be his mom.
He’s been very inclusive with me, also,
and I don’t think that a lot of moms get that.
But his whole circle of friends
have been very inclusive of both of us, I think,
and that’s been really special,
because it would have been really hard
to be excluded from this time.
-Andy has taught me
that many, many things that I worry about don’t matter.
Really, the only thing that matters is life.
And it took all of this
for me to learn — to learn more.
It’s just…very blessed to have him as my son.
– 离世时 象征着我的旅途结束了
-When I die, that represents the end of my journey.
But then, that represents the starting point
of another journey for everyone else.
多么美好的目的啊 之后 拥有——
What a wonderful purpose, then, to have —
to be the reference point
that enables people to expand their capacity to love
and to be happy.
And I think ultimately, that is the purest form of purpose.
– 克里斯的启示 他的遗赠
-Chris’ message, his legacy,
is one that I think has already touched
so many people around the world.
It’s touched me, and it’s touched all of us here.
And for us to be able to build on that
is something which I think is very important.
– 所以我们 作为朋友兼电影制作人
-So we, as the friends and filmmaker —
we’re trying to take the initiative to raise enough funds
so that the family can really spend time with Chris in these last days.
-To be able to raise funds to help Chris
and to help his family and to build his legacy
is something that will help so many more people than just us.
-We hope this has painted a tiny picture
of the man that Chris is
and the love that we all have for him.
我们知道 如果你了解了他 你也会爱他的
And we know that if you knew him, you would love him, too.
So whether you’re inspired to give a dollar
or a couple dollars, whether you can just offer a prayer,
or if you feel like hosting this on your social network
and telling your friends about it,
we would really appreciate it,
and we know the family would, as well.
So from all of our hearts, thank you for watching.
-Thank you. -Thank you.
-Thank you. -Thank you.
我最后的日子 | 一起为克里斯加油
