If I were to meet Darren Criss, I would have to tell him that he helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life. I first heard of him last summer, around the same time my mom was diagnosed with cancer. A Very Potter Musical helped me to feel better on the worst days. My mom is a single mom, and I had to take care of her by myself the entire time she went through chemo. It was the scariest experience of my life. Darren’s song Not Alone got me through the worst of days. And now, a year later, my mom is cancer-free, and we watch him on Glee together every week.
