A Life-Changing Tip for a Struggling Waitress

An Unexpected Turn of Events

Jessica Reboredo, a hardworking waitress and mother of four, found herself in a difficult situation when her husband, Robert, was diagnosed with testicular cancer that had already spread. As Robert underwent treatment in Los Angeles, Jessica had to travel long distances to be by his side. Without his income, she struggled to pay the bills and feed her children. She even had to sleep in her car outside the hospital due to lack of funds. It was a challenging time for the family.

A Teacher’s Compassion Shines Through

Despite the passing years, Jessica stayed in touch with her second-grade teacher, Kimberly. Little did she know just how important this connection would become. In 2018, Kimberly reached out to the Fox5 Surprise Squad for help. She wanted to make a difference in Jessica and her family’s life.

A Life-Changing Moment

The overwhelming support from the patrons was enough to make Jessica’s heart skip a beat. The kind act brought tears of gratitude to her eyes. The incredible generosity she witnessed that day would forever stay with her.
