His daughter is only a part-time waitress and has two children, ages 13 and 9. His greatest fear was that he’d leave this world and they’d be left homeless.
“Once I pass away, chances are my daughter, who’s a part-time waitress at a small restaurant in Livonia, will lose the house we live in because she won’t be able to afford it anymore,” Broskey said. “So I’m doing everything for her and my grandkids at this point. When you find out you’re dying, you realize your family and friends are so important.”
Enter Uber car passenger Roland Gainer, a complete stranger, who happened to strike up a conversation with Broskey while riding in his car.
“I was asking him if he liked Uber driving, and then he explained how much he loved it because he got to meet new people, and it was also helping him earn extra money before dying because he had head, tongue, and throat cancer,” Gainer told ABC News.
However, Gainer didn’t just want to help, he wanted to take action. Gainer was able to raise $22,000 in three days for the noble grandfather.
