MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
In this edition of "Cash for Kindness" we meet a woman who is defying the odds. She's a cancer survivor, but it hasn't stopped her from living her life to the fullest and inspiring others to do the same.
Monica Arrington loves to sew. In fact, she not only does it for others, she teaches classes at church and at a local school. But, back in 2001 some thought her life would begin to unravel when Mrs. Arrington learned she had cancer.
Her daughter-in-law described Mrs. Arrington's strength as remarkable. "You would think with everything she's going through, she would be down and sick but she's never like that she's always up and smiling and ready to go."
And, she's never misses a beat. Along with sewing classes she keeps busy with volunteer work. It's an example that inspired her family to nominate her for "Cash for Kindness."
Her son calls his mother kind but strong-willed. "And anything you ask her for, you could be a person off the street and she'll try to help you out at anytime" said Steven Merriweather.
We thought that kind of kindness was worthy of a little cash.
When we met up with Mrs. Arrington her home was filled with family excited about the presentation. Mrs. Arrington shared with us how she keeps going.
"We learned you were diagnosed with cancer. How did you deal with it?"
"Oh I just handed it over to God and kept going," she explained!
She says he gave her the strength to keep going.
We we're glad to pass along $120 that her family happily forwarded to a wife, mother and grandmother who, despite her own circumstances, knows no limits.
