(WTVM) - A California teen is receiving an overwhelming response after posting a photo that reflects love and support between her parents to her Twitter account.

Mackenna Newman's mother was diagnosed with cancer in October. While in isolation during a radiation treatment, Newman's dad set up a desk outside her door, just to keep her company.

"I just aspire to find someone that in love and devoted to me," said Newman.

Within a little over a week of being posted, the photo received over 7k retweets and 9k likes.

Fellow Twitter users tweeted well wishes and expressed emotions.

Others used GIFS and emojis to show sentiment.
