Once again Daryn Kagan shares another great story (I get them every day from her website). This particular story struck me because back on March 1, 2008 I posted a story I read about in the Oregonian that day. (When People Do Nice Things for Each Other) Daryn’s story is about two childhood friends who continued their close relationship into young adulthood when one of them was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Rather than be overwhelmed and at a loss as to what to do, a support project was started that resulted in the development of a special website that gives everyone a way to help others. The story is well worth a read, and perhaps, even participation on your part if you have a friend in need or just want to be a blessing to another person.
