A Random Act of Kindness at Brothers Pizza
A server’s random act of kindness made a cancer patient’s day and earned invaluable free publicity for Brothers Pizza on Rt. 33 in Hamilton, New Jersey. When Rick Lewallen, who has been fighting brain cancer—and the medical bills that come with it—got his check at the pizzeria, he also got a heartwarming surprise: an encouraging note from his 17-year-old waitress, Daniela Bossi, that read, “For putting up the biggest fight … this one is on me.” His wife Annette later posted a thank-you note to Bossi, and the word spread from there. “It was a vote for humanity,” Rick Lewallen told NJ.com. “I’ve finally stopped crying about it.” According to media reports, the pizzeria’s owners reimbursed Bossi for the bill. “They told me they were behind me 100 percent,” Bossi told NJ.com. As word of Bossi’s good deed spread, the story went viral and the pizzeria earned glowing publicity in the Star-Ledger, the Daily Meal and the UK’s Daily Mail and on websites around the world.
