Pronari bën diçka të pazakontë për punëtorin e sëmurë me kancer

Kur Keith Ellick u diagnostikua me kancer vdekjeprurës, shefi i tij, Addam Smith donte dëshpërimisht të bënte diçka për t’i ngritur humorin.

Drejtori i kompanisë ku punonte Ellick mobilizoi një skuadër me 50 punëtorë dhe ata transformuan brenda shtatë ditësh shtëpinë me dy dhoma gjumi ku jeton Ellick, një kopshtar, bashkë me të shoqen, Sasha Hogan, 26 vjeç dhe djalin e tyre, Leyton, 5 vjeç.

Ellick ka edhe 12 muaj jetë.

“Nuk kam para as për funeralin,” i tha ai shefit të tij.

Ai ishte i shqetësuar për familjen e tij, jo për veten.

Pasi i kanë rregulluar shtëpinë, tashmë Smith shpreson se do të mbledhin 100 mijë sterlina për të ndihmuar familjen e tij që ta blejë plotësisht shtëpinë.
