Jennifer Gaines Pays It Forward: 9/10

Jennifer Gaines decided to help a friend... Jennifer Gaines decided to help a friend...

This week, we have a very special installment of Pay It Forward. Our story revolves around a playmaker and a recipient who have been going through separate medical issues at the same time.

We set up with our Pay It Forward sign along 82nd Street just east of Slide Road. Jennifer Gaines was the first person to approach us after seeing our sign. 

Jennifer is from Lamesa and wanted to help out her neighbor who has been battling breast cancer. Jennifer and her friend Christine Maxwell were both in town for a medical appointment.

Jennifer just found out that she will have to receive a Hysterectomy soon. Christine is also overcoming hurdles of her own battling breast cancer. 

Christine was at Covenant Hospital having a medical exam. We traveled to Covenant and waited outside until Christine's appointment was done.

Christine and her son walk out of Covenant and Jennifer surprises her with $300. 

Christine said she could certainly use the money to help pay off medical bills. Christine gives Jennifer a big hug and thanks her for helping her out.

Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon!  You could become our next playmaker!
