I never knew Esther. I never met her and never talked to her, but I knew about her. I voted for her. The Harry Potter Alliance, in the Chase Community Challenge, was sponsoring her.
I didn’t even really understand it, but I voted for her because that’s what was right. I wanted her to get better. No one deserves cancer.
Unfortunately, Esther is no longer with us. This girl I knew almost nothing about is gone, and I’m very sad that I never got to meet and get to know her. We are both a part of the Nerdfighter community, but we had never truly crossed paths. I’m very sorry for that because honestly, I’ve heard so many great things about her. I feel like we would’ve been good friends.
Rest in Awesome, Esther. And tell Dumbledore I say hi.
