Bobby is just a child, but he has been diagnosed with cancer. His father had to cut back on hours at work in order to take Bobby back and forth to appointments. With less money and high medical bills to pay, they struggled. Bobby felt bad about the hardships caused by his cancer and felt worse that his favorite holiday, Christmas, wouldn’t be celebrated. They couldn’t afford food or rent, much less gifts.
Then a neighbor told Bobby’s dad about Cityteam. When Bobby’s dad came to Cityteam, the staff and volunteers jumped right in to help with a food box for him to take home that day. He also received gifts for Bobby and his sisters to open on Christmas day. The support from Cityteam makes their burden a little lighter and their Christmas such a meaningful and special time.
