Amanda Kofoed is a wonderful woman, mom, (dog mom), wife and student in Idaho. However, in early October 2016, Amanda felt a suspicious bump. After numerous amounts of tests, biopsies, doctor visits and the like, she was diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkins Lymphoma at the age of 30.
Friends and family rushed to do anything that they could to help with upcoming medical expenses since she doesn’t have health insurance. They even set up a GoFundMe page in her name for people to attribute donations for the Kofoeds.
But little did Amanda know, her friends and family had another setup for her as well. Online positive prank group, Praynksters, set up a video shoot at a café where Amanda and her husband Clint believed they were shooting for her GoFundMe campaign.
That’s when something beautifully sweet happened. Nearly 200 people walked in a single file, one by one while they were shooting and each set down a $100 bill.
Instantly, tears begin falling from the Kofoed’s faces. The line stretched outside for blocks; filled with people showing an outpouring of love and support. The best was saved for last. The final four people to walk through the door were their children carrying flowers, open arms and sweet smiles.
Watch the video below while Jimmy Eat World’s “Hear You Me” plays over the video, bringing on the waterworks!
