Brad, a homeless sick man from Albuquerque, New Mexico, had serious health problems that sent him on a search across the country to get treatment.
He headed to Maryland for a brain tumor treatment, but unfortunately his care broke down just outside Albuquerque and he stopped on a gas station parking lot. Brad was living in his car for a weeks until he was finally informed that his car couldn’t be repaired. Since he is homeless, the employees from the gas stations were giving him drinks and food during his stay on the parking lot. When Bred received the information about his car, he was devastated.
When gas station manager heard about this, she reached out to the community for help. “On behalf of New Mexico and everybody in Edgewood, we all pulled for you,” said Margaret, a store manager.
They raised more than $3,000. “’Thank you,’” said Bred. “’I mean thank you is not even enough. Thank you, New Mexico. I never expected this.’”
“There’s $300 missing from there,” said Margaret.
He started that drive to Maryland the next day but he said his friendships with those who helped him don’t end here. He plans on keeping in touch with them.
