It's nice to see that tv's Mr Nasty Simon Cowell has a heart after all. The XFactor and American Idol star has taken a young cancer sufferer under his wing and become her "Guardian Angel". Cowell was moved by the Stoen family's plight when he heard about them on the Oprah Winfrey Show. The family from Minnesota were struggling to pay their mortgage and increasing medical bills for their 3 year old daughter Madelaine. Madelaine suffers from an aggressive form of cancer and every day the family travel over 100 miles from their home so that the youngster can have treatment.

In a wonderful selfless act of kindness Simon told the family that as of now their mortgage was paid and he would now become little Madelaine's "Guardian Angel", taking care of her medical bills. Simon said that it had taken him 48 years but he now realised how good it was to give. What a lovely gesture! Mr Cowell has definitely gone up in my estimations. If only more people shared their good fortune like this, the world would be a nicer place.

I agree that it would be a better world if those with more would share with those in need. I guess it takes Oprah for some to realize that.
