Wouldn't you want the same for yourself, if you were spending multiple days in the hospital?
Cole Favro, an 18-year-old with cystic fibrosis, is a patient of Rochester's Golisano Children's Hospital. He's been in and out of the hospital consistently for the past 18 years and has come to consider the hospital a second home.
"The hospital is awful and not fun to be in, but they make it great. They're so amazing and family," said Favro, according to Spectrum Local News.
On Friday, April 19th, Cole placed a billboard in his window saying "SEND PIZZA 8 SOUTH RM 14."
I am hanging out with this awesome kid at @URMed_GCH. Cole is 18 and moving to the adult hospital. He asked for piz… https://t.co/f8uiKDKaQw— Mike Moss (@Mike Moss)1555780893.0
And boy, did people show up with pizza.
Over a dozen pies showed up at Golisano, and Cole got to have a little pizza party with the hospital staff, whom he will soon be leaving behind. Highland Hospital will become his new primary caretaker.
"We're going to miss him. It's been a fun 18 years," said Dr. Karen Voter.

"It feels great to know that people are looking out for kids in the hospital like me and that they care to send pizza up," Cole said to Yahoo Lifestyle.

"I'd seen it done years ago and I always wanted to do it at least once," says Cole.
"It was my last day at the children's hospital, and I thought it was a fun way to say goodbye to all the nurses. I wanted to see if I could get a bunch of pizzas for a party."
So this is great: “Can someone send me pizza” has run through our minds (or at least it has mine) at least once. On… https://t.co/34srg2XUvk— Jeannie McBride (@Jeannie McBride)1555856322.0

Cole is headed to SUNY Brockport in the fall to study dance, with a minor in business.
"I love dancing. I've been dancing for four years. I'd like to get my master's in dance therapy and help people with dance and give back."
Thats to those eighteen pizzas he received, he's ready to be sent off.
