FOR ANY ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY

FAMILY, TIME TOGETHER IS

PRECIOUS.

FOR THE ALI FAMILY, IT IS

ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT BECAUSE

THEIR 15-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER,

VICTORIA, HAS BRAIN CANCER.

IT WAS HARD TO TAKE AT

FIRST.

YOU TRY AND BE STRONG IN

FRONT OF THEM.

AND YOU TRY AND YOU DO WHAT

YOU CAN.

Terry: VICTORIA'S

SIBLINGS DO WHAT THEY CAN TO

HELP.

HER BROTHER, GEORGEY, TRIES

TO KEEP HER SPIRITS UP.

HE'LL GO ON HIS PHONE AND

SEARCH FUNNY PICTURES AND

HE'LL TRY AND MAKE ME

SMILE.

IF HE CAN JUST DISTRACT ME

FOR A LITTLE WHILE, FOR THE

PAIN MEDICINE TO KICK IN.

Terry: GEORGE SERVES AS

AN AVIATION MECHANIC ON AN

AIRCRAFT CARRIER.

IT CAN BE A CHALLENGE WHEN

GEORGE IS OUT TO SEA.

I HAVE TO BE MOMMY AND

DADDY.

SO I HAVE MY BOOTCAMP

INSTRUCTOR VOICE, BUT IT HAS

ONLY MADE ME A STRONGER

PERSON.

Terry: PATTY

HOME-SCHOOLS THE KIDS AND

MANAGES THE FAMILY'S SINGLE

ANNOUNCEMENT.

INCOME.

YOU LEARN TO BUDGET.

Terry: IT IS EVEN

TOUGHER WITH MEDICAL BILLS

LOOMING.

THEY'VE HAD TO PUT SOME

IMPORTANT THINGS ON HOLD.

THEIR HEATING AND COOLING

SYSTEM DOESN'T WORK.

THE WASHER-DRYER ARE BOTH

BROKEN, THE KIDS' MATTRESSES

ARE SHOT, AND THE LAPTOPS

KIDS USE FOR HOME-SCHOOLING

ARE OUTDATED.

IT IS TIGHT, YOU KNOW,

TRYING TO MAKE THINGS WORK.

Terry: CBN AND "WAVE

CHURCH," CAME TOGETHER TO

HELP THE FAMILY.

WE BOUGHT THE KIDS NEW

MATTRESSES AND GAVE THE KIDS

NEW LAPTOPS.

THIS IS JUST FOR YOU.

Terry: PASTOR CLAYTON

RIDDER TOOK THEM TO PICK UP

THEIR NEW WASHER AND DRYER.

WOW!

Terry: WE ALSO FIXED

THEIR HEATING AND COOLING

SYSTEM SO IT IS ALWAYS

COMFORTABLE INSIDE FOR

VICTORIA.

AND PASTOR RIDDER TOLD

GEORGE AND PATTY THAT CBN

WAS PAYING THEIR MEDICAL

CO-PAYMENT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

IT'S AWESOME.

THERE ARE PEOPLE IN YOUR

CORNER THAT ARE STANDING

WITH YOU.

AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO WALK

THROUGH THIS ALONE.

Terry: NOW INSTEAD OF

FOCUSING ON FINANCES, THE

ALIS CAN FOCUS ON GETTING

VICTORIA WELL.

CBN HAS BEEN FANTASTIC.

IT FEELS FANTASTIC.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY

RIGHT NOW.

IT'S AMAZING.
