CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Who would jump in to help you if you were in serious trouble? A family member? Good friend?
In Lincoln County, one child is making a difference for a friend in need. At age 10, Raemy Wensil has already faced life's hard lessons.
"I was still 10 when he died in December,” she said as she looked at a picture of her grandfather.
Robert Wensil died of leukemia.
"I felt good because it was long time since I had seen him,” she says through tears.
Now...that feeling again.
"It's just important because I love her,” she says fighting back the tears once again.
This time a friend. A close friend.
Joyce Hoyle goes to Wensil’s church. Hoyle has colon cancer and doesn't have enough insurance to pay all the bills.
So the 10-year-old decided to do what she could…make hair bows. At a dollar a piece she is making a difference. Her mom is helping.
"Who would have thought that a 10-year-old saying I'm going to give the money to Joyce would've turned into this huge? It's unbelievable,” said Merodie Wensil, Raemy’s mom.
In only a few days Wensil and a few friends have raised more than 13-hundred dollars...one bow at a time.
“I just love her. She's really nice,” she said.
And when you're 10, and a friend needs your help, you do something. Raemy Wensil is.
If you’d like to order a bow, you can go to Merodie Wensil’s facebook page to learn more.
If you would like to donate to this cause please make check payable to Pearl Baptist Church.
