“My grandmother is fighting lung and breast cancer for the past 2 years.
She lives by herself in a predominately black neighborhood.
She refuses to move in with me because she loves her independence and her home.
Her neighbors (including the 7 year old boy in the picture) helps me get her to appointments and checks on her all times throughout the day.
Caleb has been coming to see her persistently for a couple years now but especially since she’s been sick.
They are best friends.
Caleb is a stand out kid who has been handed a difficult situation and he has helped my grandmother through hers.
She lights up when she talks about it!
Our families have become so close!”
Update: My beautiful nana passed away August 9th, 2019, peacefully in her home.
