CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A woman named Sarah Price emailed and said she had two coveted tickets available for Panthers Fan Fest Friday night. She asked if there were any #MollysKids who might want them?
Elijah Clark, 18, who remains NED (No Evidence of Disease) but will be on treatments forever, just came by the station to pick them up. He's taking his older brother Jordan (you see them both here, Elijah is on the far right). Their mom Alishia was beside herself with excitement when I called her earlier this week.
How did Sarah have two extra tickets? She said she waited online over two hours last Friday for her grandchildren. They begged her to get them six tickets, the max amount you can request, because they were going to take friends. Sarah got the six tickets. Her grandchildren then decided not to take anyone.
Instead of scalping them for money when they're free to start with, Sarah reached out asking if she could donate them to a deserving one of our #MollysKids.
One phone call later it was done.
You guys make great things happen. I love good people.
