Peru, IL. While walking from the city of La Salle to De Pue, I ran into a gentleman named Frank. He was at the time driving a gas truck, saw my sign, and pulled over. After informing him of my cause he told me about his close relative having diabetes and then gave a donation.
Thanks Frank! That was one cold day and I appreciate you stopping and getting out of your warm truck to show support. I wish you and your loved ones the best! 2/21/13
