Rema Kabore just celebrated her 50th birthday, after doctors said that she wouldn’t survive past the age of one years old. Kabore has cerebral palsy, she was unable to walk until the age of 13 and had already had numerous surgeries. Due to great care, support and acts of kindness from strangers is the reason she’s alive and doing well today. For this 50th birthday, a family friend planned a surprise party for her at a restaurant in Greenville. Upon Rema’s arrival, a car full of people jumped out to show their support and to have lunch with her and her family.
Restaurant staff ensured her 50th birthday was one to remember.
According to Rema's mother Patricia, one of the young men who worked there went in the back and got his saxophone and serenaded Rema. She added that the owner, who had a beautiful voice, came over and sang happy birthday to her.
One more act of kindness happened before they left the restaurant by a woman from an entirely different group that was there. They paid for the birthday lunch for all eight of us and I was like what?" Patricia said. "I was almost in tears. With everything going on now, you just never know how much of an impact you can have on someone by doing something nice. An act of kindness means now today, more than it would've meant five years ago or 10 years ago."
Patricia has attempted to locate the woman by posting her good deed on Facebook.
"I said to the woman whose name I don't even know, if you read this reach out to me because I would like to tell you what a difference you made in the life of a young woman who celebrated a life that she was not necessarily supposed to live to see," Patricia said.
