In order to keep Jim alive, he requires daily dialysis. If he misses this treatment for a few days, there is no telling what can happen. In this case, a blizzard prevented him from leaving the house and going to the hospital.
Four days had gone by and the people in the neighborhood knew that something had been wrong. They had not seen Jim since the storm started and his house was buried under the snow. But, these good Samaritans knew they had to do something to get him out. In a life-threatening situation, these heroic neighbors began to dig away!
Thank God they started to help when they did because Jim was starting to fade. God bless this man's family and all those in his neighborhood.
