Riding the subway briefly puts you in touch with everyone in Manhattan if you ride long enough. Today I saw a woman who had a clearly visible growth on her face and was asking for help to get surgery. I don’t know if this was real or not but I would say that I’m fairly sensitive to those who have tumors. Even if they are benign.
To help her along I opened my wallet and gave her the last cash I had on me: $21
I wasn’t the only one as there were at least 6 people that I could see in the subway car that gave her money to help her along the path to getting surgery.
I do hope that she gets to her goal soon, and also that it’s not a scam. One never knows but we can always take some people we choose to trust at their word.
