Moms spend part of holiday visiting others moms battling cancer

- A group of mothers in Missouri spent part of this special weekend visiting other moms -- women who are in the hospital fighting cancer.

These women have never met 93-year-old Queen Esther Saunders.

But with the hugs and love, you'd think they're family.

The Giving Hope and Help volunteers, each mothers themselves, spent Saturday visiting moms with cancer at Research Medical Center.

Armed with a few gifts, the main reason they came was to offer company and comfort.

Staci Green with Giving Help and Hope said, "Some of them just need to know that someone's here, that someone cares."

"It`s a blessing that there's people out there that care,” said Kim Cousin, who is battling cancer.

Cousin was diagnosed three months ago.

"Friends and family and prayer, it helps. It really does. Because at first I was in denial. Nobody in my family has cancer you know,” Cousin said.

Shared tears and positive messages created quick relationships.

The women were surprised and deeply moved.

"Oh my, that meant Heaven to me. That meant all the world,” Saunders said.

A form of healing they'll remember as they push through their treatment.

"I want to thank y’all for coming. I'm overwhelmed right now,” Saunders said.
