Most people would move mountains and part the sea for the people closest to them.
For waitress and mother of four Jessica, that person is her husband, Robert, who was seriously ill with cancer. But because of her finances and the long drive to the hospital where Robert was being treated, Jessica wasn't able to be with him as much as she wanted.
But then someone stepped forward and did something that changed Jessica's life forever.
Jessica and Robert were high school sweethearts. They fell in love and had four small children together.
But shortly after their fourth child was born, everything changed.
Robert was diagnosed with testicular cancer, which eventually spread to his stomach and lungs.
Robert became so sick that he had to be moved to a hospital more than 400 miles from home.
Jessica waitresses at a local restaurant but was determined to be at her husband's side.
She would get in the car at 4:30 a.m. and drive 400 miles to the hospital. But when it came to call it a night, she couldn't afford a hotel and had to sleep in the car.
What Jessica didn't know was that she had a guardian angel at her side—a woman named Kimberly, who had been her second grade teacher and later became like a second mother to her.
Kimberly knew how kind, compassionate, and talented Jessica is and wanted to thank her for it. And that's why she contacted a local TV station.
Using hidden cameras, the TV station filmed Jessica serving some special guests. And while Jessica was serving them in her usual kind, friendly manner, she got a quite a shock.
The first person gave her a $200 tip. The second gave her $300. The third, $500. And the fourth person gave her $1,000.
Jessica couldn't believe it. Tears of gratitude ran down her cheeks. Her life was finally moving in a positive direction. But her good fortune didn't end there.
Along with the TV announcer, Kimberly and the FOX5 Surprise Squad gave her $10,000, a new car, and also paid for her hotel stays.
Suddenly, the life of this mother of four changed forever. She was able to spend much more time near her husband and support him in his battle against cancer.
What a wonderful story! I'm so happy that Jessica finally got a chance to stay close to her husband during this difficult time. Please share this article with your friends on Facebook if you were also touched by this story.
