With their niece, 16-year-old Meghan Henry of Itasca, suffering from Stage 4 lung cancer Tim and Lori Quinn of Mt. Greenwood helped organize a benefit at Sox Park to raise money for Meghan’s medical bills that are not covered by insurance.

It's that kind of selfless effort that too often goes unnoticed. I say, we put a stop to that.

So, tell me ...

your tales of what friends, neighbors or even complete strangers have done selflessly to make someone else's life a little better. It could be something heroic like (donating a kidney) or something sweet (running a bake sale for breast cancer) or anything else that's touched your life.

Let's keep a running tally of the good works of Chicago folks. Some stories will be featured in the Sun-Times.

AS A SINGLE MOTHER LIVING IN OAK LAWN,LIFE IS VERY DIFFICULT WITH A 15 YEAR OLD.ITS ALSO MADE DIFFICULT BY A DISABILITY I SUFFER. WORKING IS USUALLY NOT AN OPTION, AND EVERYONE KNOWS FAMILY MEMBERS AREN'T USUALLY THERE FOR YOU AT LEAST MINE. I MOVED OUT HERE 5 YEARS AGO I USED TO LIVE IN THE CITY THATS WHEN I MET MR. AND MRS. ED JOHNSON OF THE ST. VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY AT ST. LINUS CHURCH. I THANK GOD FOR THEM I KNOW WE'D NEVER GO WITH OUT FOOD. THEY NEVER FORGET HOLIDAYS AND ALWAYS SEND MY DAUGHTER A BIRTHDAY CARD WITH A GIFT.THIS IS TRUE KINDNESS
