CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Chicago's Rush University Medical Center has solved its latest medical mystery, and it'll warm your heart.

Someone wrote in large, clean letters, "Hi Mom God Bless U!" with a smiley face for the "O," in the snow coving the ground in a parking garage across the street from the hospital.

Hospital staff were touched by the message when they noticed it Sunday afternoon, and are trying to find the intended recipient.

The official RushU Medical Center Twitter account (@RushMedical) posted the photo Monday afternoon with this caption:

"We love this message atop the Rush parking garage, evidently intended for a patient across the street."

The Chicago Tribune reports the 14-year-old son of chemotherapy patient Sharon Hart was the mastermind behind this encouraging act of kindness.

William Hart, 14, stomped out the hello to his mother. His father and uncle added the blessing at the end. They originally wanted to write "God bless you all!" but ran out of room.

The 48-year-old mother told the Tribune that seeing the finished message was "a proud mom moment" for her, saying that "he acted on instinct and from what was in his heart."

Rush spokeswoman Deb Song said the uplifting message "gave a lot of people hope and put things into perspective."

The gesture made national headlines this week, reaching a much wider audience than William intended!
