I was surprised and overwhelmed when Kirk, Kelly, and their daughter Kayla came over to my house and handed me a $1000 check. I was diagnosed with stage 4a lung cancer on December 2017. Since then, my friends and my children’s friends and their parents have encouraged me, prayed for me, and offered help. Touched by how friendly and supportive my community is, I said to myself that I will offer / bring back help and support when I can. Kirk and Kelly’s $1000 check will help pay for my medical bills, and more importantly show me how glorious the love of God is, how wonderful the world is, and give me strength to fight the cancer and encourage me to do my best to contribute to this community.
