A woman dying of cancer received the most amazing act of kindness from a rank stranger and it touched her so much that she shared it on social media.
The Arizona woman, Kim Whipple, has only one year to live as she undergoes treatment after being diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer in July 2019.
Act of kindness
As she was sitting on a front porch in Queens Creek, Arizona last week, a person came up to her and gave her a letter. “She’s holding it and says, ‘I want to give you this,’” she said.
After Whipple’s family opened the envelope and read the letter, it said, “I don’t know you and you don’t know me but when I was out walking my dog I noticed a lady in your garage sitting in a chair who is sick and I then I looked at the truck with the middle finger with the ‘c’ word,” the letter read.
The letter said that the stranger’s brother, her hero, had died from cancer. “So when I see someone who might have it my heart is with your family and that lady I saw sitting in the chair,” the letter continued. “I will keep your family in my prayers. Hoping that she kicks its butt.”
There was a gift of $60, and said that to use it “on anything.” It read, “I know its not a lot but something that might make her day brighter,” the letter continued, “P.S. I will spray the cash with Lysol.”
Whipple said that she was told she would live a year by doctors in July 2019, but now is hoping she may end up in remission. As people pray for her all over the country, Whipple says this act of kindness is another positive boost for her. “One of the best thing that’s happened to me in a long time,” she said.
