Secret Samaritan Surprises Local Cancer Fighter


By Taren Powell

The Secret Samaritan Charity Program awarded another deserving family last week. Jeremy Nef from Helper was nominated by his daughter Crystal. 

The nomination explained that Jeremy had been diagnosed with stage four melanoma cancer and was recently hospitalized due to a brain bleed caused by a tumor in his brain. After spending extensive time in the ICU, Jeremy was released to go home. Unfortunately, the brain bleed caused memory and vision problems and he is unable to work until he regains his health. The Nef family has a road of recovery ahead of them as they continue to help Jeremy fight his battle with cancer.

A donation of $3,000 in gift and gas cards were given to the Nef family. This was all made possible by the amazing donors with the Secret Samaritan Charity Program. Jeremy shared his appreciation by saying how these gift cards will help his family with everyday expenses, including food and groceries.
