Meals on Wheels is a real godsend
I moved here from Simpsonville, N.C., last August to spend some time with my daughter and her family because she was going to have a baby in January.
With my bedroom suit and my living room furniture, I moved into a room in her garage. I had planned to move back to South Carolina in March, but I have been too sick to do so. Although I had been sick for two years and had lost 80 pounds, doctors in South Carolina could not find anything wrong with me.
I became very ill in January and went to Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital with a large knot on my neck. They did tests, and I was told I had Hodgkins’ disease.
I have had eight rounds of chemo. Now I have to have 18 radiation treatments.
Someone gave my name to Greenup Meals on Wheels. They came to see me, and every day they have brought me a wonderful lunch. When I got food stamps and told Mr. Stanley Ramey he could stop bringing me meals, he told me that I was too sick to cook for myself.
Mr. Ramey, the chairman of Greenup Meals or Wheels, and his staff have been a godsend to me. They have hugged me and prayed with me and for me. Now they are praying that after my radiation is over, I will find a way back to South Carolina.
Mr. Ramey and his staff are wonderful, and I just wanted people to know special Greenup Meals on Wheels is.
