Widower Donates Life Insurance Money To Help Pay Others’ Medical Debt

Danny Roberson was married to the love of his life, Betty, for sixteen years. They were happy, but soon, tragedy would disrupt their lives.

Betty developed a cancerous tumor and underwent chemotherapy to try to treat it. During that time, Danny was also diagnosed with cancer, developing a tumor in his face. He refused to get treatment just so he could help contribute to Betty’s own treatment.

Sadly, Betty eventually passed away from her tumor this past February. After Betty passed, Danny finally got treatment for his facial tumor. After a successful surgery, he is recovering well. But he also wanted to pay tribute to Betty in a special way.

Danny recently donated $10,000 of Betty’s life insurance payout to nonprofit RIP Medical Debt, which buys out people’s medical debt for pennies on the dollar. So, with the $10,000, Danny’s selfless donation will get rid $1 MILLION in medical debt for others––no small thing at all! “When they go out and see that RIP medical envelope in their mailbox, I know God is blessing them and I know Betty may have had a little bit to do with that,” Danny said in an interview.

In a difficult time where you’ve had to say goodbye to someone, you’re very rarely thinking of other people outside of your own loved ones. I know that all too well. So for this man to decide that he wanted to honor his wife’s memory in this way is truly beautiful to hear! Continued thoughts and prayers go to Danny and his family.

Teacher Donates Her Kidney to Her 4-Year-Old Student’s Dad

This teacher went above and beyond in a major act of love for one of her students, donating a kidney to his dad!


This teacher went above and beyond in a major act of love for one of her students and his family!

Nancy Bleuer teaches preschool at Washington Charlie Brown Preschool and Childcare in Mason City, Iowa. One of her students is 4-year-old Camden, whose father, Darreld Peterson, had been diagnosed with renal kidney failure in January. Darreld had been put on dialysis, and was really close to a new kidney, but the donor backed out at the last minute.

After Camden told her the sad news, Nancy decided to see if she could donate one of her kidneys to Darreld. She filled out the required paperwork, and discovered that she was a match! She will officially donate her kidney to Darreld TODAY (June 1)!  “It’s just amazing,” Darreld told ABC News. “There are people waiting every day for a kidney, for an organ in general. I wish there were more people like her. She’s giving me a second chance at life.”


A beautiful story, and a very selfless act!
