The letter reads:

“I don’t know you, and you don’t know me, but when I was out walking my dog, I noticed a lady in your garage sitting in a chair who is sick and I then I looked at the truck with the middle finger with the ‘c’ word.

My brother passed away from the ‘c’ word who was my hero. So when I see someone who might have it, my heart is with your family and that lady I saw sitting in the chair. I will keep your family in my prayers. Hoping that she kicks its butt.

Please use this money on anything. I know it’s not a lot but something that might make her day brighter.”

Inside the letter was $60.

Whipple told FOX10 she was only given a year to live when she went to a doctor in July 2019, said that now doctors are hoping she may end up in remission.

In addition to prayers from family and friends over the past year, Whipple said the simple act of kindness by a stranger gave her yet another positive boost.

“One of the best thing that’s happened to me in a long time”.
