The last place Curtis Exum of Torrington, Connecticut, wanted to be was the oncology unit, where he was at his lowest following a cancer diagnosis. All the 62-year-old could think about during his 10-day stay at UConn John Dempsey Hospital was being home again and strumming his guitars.
Medical assistant Sammy Myers couldn’t help noticing Curtis was in a dark place. Luckily, he remembered that his daughter had an unused guitar sitting around at home. He spruced it up, threw in an amp, and presented it to the musician — who cried tears of joy!
“It was the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me,” Curtis said. “It was just so nice. I’ve had to fight for everything I had my whole life and to have a stranger give me such a gift, it saved my sanity.”
Watch as Curtis thanks Sammy with a song in the video below, and share this special moment to brighten more days.
