Woman Gets The Surprise Of A Lifetime After A Small Act Of Kindness

A chance encounter starts a cascade of events that will help so many people.

Tracy Warshal didn't think twice before paying for the groceries of a man who had forgotten to bring his wallet.

The groceries only totaled about $7.

“He thanked me, asked my name and I said, ‘Tracy’ and that was it. I said, ‘Merry Christmas,’ and that was literally it,” she said.

Warshal, who works for Georgia's Piedmont Cancer Institute, happened to be wearing her work T-shirt that day at the grocery store, and the man took notice.

A few weeks later, the man who has remained anonymous, tracked her down to return the favor and made a $10,000 donation in her name to a Piedmont Foundation, which helps cancer patients pay their bills.

After getting the donation, a stunned Warshal posted on Facebook: 

"We often forget the little things in life that mean the most. What are the chances…of all the people I could have helped, that this would be how the favor was returned? One person really can make a difference."

The $10,000 donation will go to the Dana G. Smith Cancer Assistance Endowment at Piedmont Foundation and money will help cancer patients foot the bill for treatment, medication and transportation.
