Mothers will do anything to protect their children, even if it puts their own lives at risk.
Joanna Wiley is a single mother just barely getting by. Unable to afford a contractor to fix her leaking roof, she attempted to fix it herself—but she fell from the ladder and suffered a traumatic brain injury.
To make matters worse, she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer while in the hospital.
Desperate for help, she made an emotional plea on Facebook asking for “a safe place for me and my family to live.”
One roofer, Edward Aguado, saw the post and decided to help in any way he could. Within three days, he fixed her roof—and insisted she didn’t pay a penny.
“It makes it 100% worth it. We’re glad we did it,” Aguado said. “I was in a position where I could help and I wanted to help. It was really as simple as that.”
