    Intro:
    Cancer is one of the hardest illnesses a person can face. It can be especially hard for a farmer who needs to be in the field during planting and harvest season. Fortunately volunteers from an organization called Farm Rescue are more than happy to lend a helping hand. Warren and Kristi Miller share their experience with Farm Rescue.

    Package Script:
    Last fall during harvest I started to become fatigued to the point where when I was working on machinery I would have to go into the shop and lay down for an hour or so. At about the same time, I started passing blood and I knew that something was wrong here. They did a colonoscopy and found a cancerous polyp. When spring’s work started, I realized after going through about four treatments that this was probably a little more than I could tackle myself.

    And at that point I knew I had to do something. And so right the next morning I emailed Farm Rescue.

    As a farmer you have a certain amount of pride and stubbornness, but I think it’s part of being a man to realize when you’re licked and when you have to ask for help. While they were here they worked as hard as I ever worked on my farm. I mean they went 24 hours a day. Professional in what they did and I just can’t say enough.

    It was an amazing experience. They didn’t make us feel like a charity case or anything like that. They were family.

    After going through this process, I came to the realization that I think there are angels that live among us right now, and I consider those volunteers that work for Farm Rescue to be angels among us.
