HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Through all the struggles, all the crises, all the pain, she's always thinking of others.
Cindy Chapman says her friend and former pre-school co-worker, Beth Dye, is a strong, compassionate and generous woman.
Beth, a breast cancer survivor, quit her job to attend to her daughter's healthcare needs. The teenager has a genetic disorder called Ehlers- Danlos Syndrome. It's led to serious complications, including Lupus and temporary paralysis.
Over the years, Kylie has had numerous hospital stays and surgeries, but she and her mom remain passionate about helping others. They donate toys, movies and gifts to hospitalized children.
Beth packs tote bags with blankets, snacks and other items for chemo patients. Her friend says she can't think of anyone more deserving of our Acts Of Kindness recognition than Beth.
When we surprised mother and daughter at home, Beth was moved to tears. She knew exactly what she wanted to do with our $300 token of appreciation: buy more gifts for hospitalized children.
