Cancer survivor helps those in need despite hurt and heartbreak

"It's just a blessing that I can help" Amelia woman receives an Act of Kindness

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - For decades, Shirley Carter has been giving back to people who are less fortunate. With recipes she learned from her grandmother, and armed with vegetables from her husband's garden, Carter has been canning food and giving it away to those in need.

Even through losing her daughter from an accident no one saw coming, and her sister shortly after, and even after being diagnosed with cancer – Carter never stopped canning or helping those who needed it.

It’s that strength and drive to help others that led Carter to be nominated for Acts of Kindness.
