Donor- Josie Chelberg

Mrs. Josie Chelberg is an elderly lady who lives in a small downstairs room in her daughter’s home. She depends on her monthly social security check and must count her pennies to make ends meet. She and Dr. Kathleen Fenton’s mother, Jodie, are members of a small prayer group. At a recent meeting Mrs. Fenton requested the group pray for a “special intention” related to her daughter’s work. The following week Mrs. Chelberg, still praying for the unknown special intention, arrived at the meeting and handed Mrs. Fenton an envelope, saying it was for Kathleen. Written inside the flap was a simple note: “The money is for the children.” Enclosed was a $20 bill. She did not know until several weeks later that she had just made the very first donation to the Novick Cardiac Alliance.
