Earlier this week, tears were shed, hearts burst and lives were changed when the highly-anticipated trailer for the upcoming film, "The Fault in Our Stars," was released. But for Naomi Horn, the trailer held extra special meaning.

In a heartwarming video response, the 13 year-old describes the impact the trailer had on her in light of her uncle passing way from prostate cancer when she young. The teen's mom was also diagnosed with stage three breast cancer at the age of 38 (she is now cancer-free).

"When I first read 'The Fault in Our Stars,' I didn't really think about my uncle or my mom, but last night, as I scrolled through seven years worth of memorial posts on his website and listened to his voice blogs, everything from the book came rushing back to me," says Naomi. "All the quotes about watching someone you love die became more real."

Listen in the touching video above.

"Every time, my eyes started tearing up as soon as Hazel said, 'I'm a grenade,'" continues Naomi. "The rawness of the emotions is what's sticking with me. From the pure love to the angry grief, everything that was happening in the short two and a half minutes seemed real. I don't think I'll be able to get through the opening credits without bursting into tears. And that's okay."
