A Special Mother’s Day Story

Did you catch the special Mother’s Day episode of StoryCorps on today’s NPR Morning Edition?

Every week StoryCorps brings me to tears, but today’s story was especially poignant given our current Spring storm relief efforts.

Just two months after she passed away due to pancreatic cancer, Mary Cobb’s Alabama home was destroyed by a tornado. In this segment, her son William Anthony shares, “As painful as it was for Mom to go of cancer, it’s better than what would have happened if she had been in that house.”

Listen to the whole story (including William Anthony’s beautiful interview with his mom before she passed away).

And if you’re moved by the suffering caused by the Spring storms please consider making a tribute gift for Mother’s Day.
