Dean Eastmond said following his surprise:
"I was so overwhelmed and shocked! When the drag queen on tage mentioned a 21-year-old with cancer, my initial reaction was Oh, wow, there's someone here like me. It took a while for it to click on that she was talking about me! The video has really shown me how important my friends are to me and (apparently) how important I am to them! I have no idea how they kept it as quiet as they did, but it was a beautiful last moment until I restart chemotherapy."
