WETUMPKA, AL (WSFA) -
In "Cash for Kindness" we turn our focus to breast cancer awareness month. As we wrap up October we wanted to share a story of a woman who decided to turn her passion into a helping hand for women battling breast cancer everyday.
By day Kathy Corbman is the assistant principal at Wetumpka High School, but by night some may consider her an angel. Kathy is an avid knitter and her recent project caught the attention of her co-worker, Monica Brown.
"She knits caps for cancer patients and makes those donations to the Montgomery Cancer Center," Brown said.
Brown was diagnosed with breast cancer, herself, in 2008 and, as you can imagine, it was a trying time. But she quickly found comfort in Kathy Corbman when she knitted her a cap.
"Losing your hair is one of the hardest things to do, so your head gets cold and so by wearing a cap it protects your head, and it means a lot to people going through that kind of treatment... " Brown explained.
That labor of love inspired Monica to nominate Kathy for "Cash for Kindness." Monica wanted to pass along $120 to her friend who helped her in her time of need.
We met Kathy Corbman at Wetumpka H.S. just as her day was ending, and we surprised her with Monica's help.
"Mrs. Corbman I nominated you for "Cash for Kindness" for knitting those caps for the cancer patients," Brown beamed.
There was laughter at first. but Mrs. Corbman got serious when she started talking about her mission and her friend.
"I started making those caps last December. Why? Because of Mrs. Brown and what she means to me and Wetumpka High School and how awesome she is as a teacher, but also what she went through."
Corbman added, "The toughness she went through when she was here teaching those kids. They love her as much as I do."
It started with a gift, a kind gesture that turned into a passion that's now helping one cancer survivor at a time.
