Reporter: IT HAS BEEN MONTHS

SINCE RAY'S ACCIDENT

AND HE STILL IS NOT ABLE

TO WALK WITHOUT CRUTCHES.

I FELL ON THE RUSTY IRON

BAR THAT PIERCED MY THY.

THIGH.

I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GO

BACK TO WORK.

IT IS JUST TOO PAINFUL.

Reporter: RAY'S WIFE,

SHERRY, HAS BEEN SUPPORTING

THE FAMILY BY DOING SMALL

CLEANING JOBS.

WITH THAT MONEY, THEY HAVE

ONLY BEEN ABLE TO BUY FOOD

AND MEDICINE TO HELP WITH

RAY'S PAIN.

HE DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY TO

GO BACK TO THE HOSPITAL TO

REMOVE THE STAPLES FROM HIS

SURGERY.

SO HE USED AN OLD NAIL

CLIPPER TO TRY TO PULL THEM

OUT HIMSELF.

IT WAS AGONIZING.

BUT I COULD ONLY TAKE OUT A

NEW OF THE STAPLES.

Reporter: WHEN RAY AND

SHERRY HEARD ABOUT CBN'S

MEDICAL MISSION IN THEIR

TOWN, THEY WALKED FOR MILES

IN THE RAIN HOPING TO GET

HELP.

A CBN DOCTOR REMOVED THE

REST OF RAY'S STAPLES, AND

THEN GAVE HIM A STRONG

ANTIBIOTIC TO HELP WITH THE

INFECTION.

I AM SO HAPPY THAT CBN

CAME HERE TO HELP US.

NOW I CAN GET WELL AND SOON

GO BACK TO WORK.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR HELPING US.
