THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY has now accomplished a multiplier of 4,316. That should stunningly put us into the greatest organization Mankind ever conceived.

FOUNDER FRAMER SALAR KHAN YUSAFZAI should do utmost to inform Angel Orli and her parents of The World Students Society's every prayer and wish for her full and complete recovery. !Ameen!

THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY is the exclusive ownership of Angel Orli - just as it is the exclusive and eternal ownership of every single student, every single child in the world. Welcome to !WOW! : The World Students Society.

All revenues, All revenues from Ads, All Film Rights, All Book Rights, All Scholarships, All Endowments, All Funds, All patents, All intellectual property rights, belongs to the students, administered and dispensed by your elected nominees, over all of which, the Founder Framers hold a VETO.

ANGEL STUDENT ORLI JOINED TikTok last January, a month into her treatment for a rare liver cancer. She was newly bald and fully isolated.

Orli used TikTok to engage her hospital world. She taught her transplant surgeon the Renegade two weeks after he spent 14 hours removing her perfidious liver. While phalanxes of nurses and assorted hospital technicians performed viral dances with her.

She picked up camera tricks, transitions, and voice-overs and sophisticated cuts. In the spring, she appealed to people to stay home for the vulnerable, for her. She created a choreography. Her dancing grew crisp and fast.

In June, Orli flipped her account to public and suddenly picked up over 25,000 followers. She was overjoyed. I hated it. I worried about trolls and responsibility.

We decided she would have to show me each video, before posting it. We fell down on that rule. I feared she would sink under the terrible weight of social media's dark side.

Soon, Orli, and her younger sister, Hana, were filming themselves daily. I made them lock the account. Except for seven weeks in Massachusetts in the springs, when Orli received a liver transplant from a team of Boston Children Hospital, she has spent over a year of Tuesdays in the fourth-floor oncology clinic at Children's National Medical Center.

We have seen her through seven rounds of chemo, around 65 days in the hospital, a stint at the I.C.U. an emaciated season when my 5-foot-girl hovered around 80 pounds, plagued by nausea and exhausted by low blood counts.

Through surgeries, and bag after bag of intravenous fluids flowing into a tube in her chest hooked up at home to an TV pole hanging perilously close to her bedroom ceiling fan, and, of course, through our fragile pandemic isolation Orli documented it all in 60 second TikTok.

Far worse than the extended screen time were the moments she didn't share, when she was too frustrated, in too much pain or too enervated to post anything at all. These days, we'd all but beg her to create something, and she would refuse.

We now have a flip-book of a grueling year, a documentary of illness and recovery, persistence, silliness and, yes, even joy. In Orli's earliest TikTok videos, when her cancer was new and her belly still visibly swollen with tumour, she appears, skeletally thin, her eyes huge, her face pale and wan.

By June, there is the occasional masked, distanced friend outdoors; in August she recorded a visit with tested and quarantined cousins who were permitted to briefly shed their masks.

There is an even, the inevitable pandemic puppy, in our case a Labradoodle rescue dog who loathes outsiders with a passion mitigated only by the fact that outsiders rarely come near. Eventually, we see all the boredom of every other non-ill child in the pandemic.

THEN, then I started reading the comments. Kids were telling her how brave and strong she was, how impressed they were.

Orli began narrating her cancer story in 45-second chats, responding to questions from her public. The result is a glimpse into how a middle schooler fathoms the unfathomable. ''Yes, cancer hurts a lot,'' she says in one clip she filmed in mid-June, responding to a comment. ''I cannot explain to you how much pain I was in, right when I got diagnosed, throughout till I got my transplant.''

In Orli's recent videos, her hair finally grown out from bald to spiky bob and partly dyed magenta, she has morphed once again from patient back to kid, albeit a different one than the girl she was before the TinTok account existed.

If we ever forget, as if we could, we can see the record. It's all here, on the screen in the palm of my hand. Our heartbreak, our TikTok WARRIOR.

The World Students Society rises to give the author, Sarah Wildman, a staff editor in Opinion, a standing ovation.

With respectful dedication to Orli, her Parents, Grandparents all, Parents, Students, Professors and Teachers of the world. See Ya all prepare and register for Great Global Elections on The World Students Society : wssciw.blogspot.com and Twitter - !E-WOW! - The Ecosystem 2011 :
