C'mon Get Happy: Town Remodels Home While Wife Has Chemo!


 There's a woman in North Dakota named Kerri-Lynn Larimer who's been fighting cancer for about a year.  And everyone in her community loves her. So when she left town last month for a round of treatments, they decided to do something pretty amazing.

Her best friend texted 20 people to see if they'd help replace the flooring in Kerri-Lynn's house.  Which was something she'd been wanting to do for a while. Then about 50 more people heard about it and got involved.  And instead of just putting in new floors, they basically remodeled her entire house.

About 75 people volunteered, in a town with only 1,000 residents.  And in one week, they redid the floors, one of the bathrooms, replaced a bunch of light fixtures, repainted the walls, fixed up the yard. and even installed a new furnace.

The materials alone cost about $9,000, but she and her husband didn't pay a dime.  And all the labor was free.

Her friends also started a GoFundMe campaign trying to raise $15,000 to help with bills.  And it's already up to $23,000.  Wow!! They call the street to the Larimer's house, the Highway of Love!
