Good Deed: #HelpChuksWin

 

Last month, I got a jolt. I wished an old friend “Happy Birthday” two days before activity on her Facebook wall indicated that she was dead.

Not only dead, Ada had been dead for two years. I was numb.

Then I checked instagram, to try to buzz another old friend and be the first to wish him a Happy Birthday at midnight, only to see that he has cancer and was in need of funds for his second chemotherapy session.

I wept.

I have since reached out to tried to create awareness verbally, as well as donate a small token myself.

I am happy to report that he has finished his chemotherapy session and is clear.

We hope he remains a cancer survivor and never goes into remission. Please join us in prayers that Chuks will continue to win over this situation.

Moral of this story: Reach out to your friends once in a while, especially old ones that you hardly hear from. Say hello and actually solicit a response. You never know what they may be going through. And I hope its not too late, like it was for Ada.
