As said before, it was difficult to judge her father’s emotions during the conversation. ￼ “I specifically remember one event that demonstrated the outpouring love and care this community has for our family...

“The community has been more than a blessing. The’ve been life saving. They’ve saved our home, and they’ve helped keep this family together.”
"But there’s one specific person we think of who’s made a profound effect on this family and helping with Hayden’s treatment."
“Who’s that?” I ask. “She’s Hayden’s angel!”
“Well, she’s not just Hayden’s angel. She’s a savior to many others like us.”
