Every Saturday morning, I post my HEROES OF THE WEEK on Week-ends.
During the course of any week, I do my best to keep track of worthy recipients. One I’ve found already for this week is Darlene Gant.
Gant, suffering from breast cancer, needs a certain drug to live in order to see her son on Mother’s Day. The drug had not been approved by our glorious government’s FDA.
From her bed, Gant produced a 20-minute video explaining in great detail her turmoil. Normally, Week-ends has a host of links. My concern was that Gant’s 20-minute video would be lost, glossed over in all those other stories.
So I post the Darlene Gant story complete with video so you will take the time to read and also watch the video that made such an impact. It’s an amazing testimonial to the powerful impact of the Internet, video, and the human spirit.
God bless you, Darlene Gant.
