Filled with hope
Fighting cancer can take all of an individual’s energy and attention — and that of their loved ones.
Ben Ellis, a beloved high school teacher from Tennessee, was diagnosed with the disease and was in the middle of his treatments when he heard something outside…
400 of Ben’s students stopped what they were doing at school and showed up in bus loads at his front yard to sing songs of worship. Ben was so moved that he started singing along and many couldn’t hold back their tears. Millions of people have already seen this video and been touched by the amazing compassion and care shown by the students for their teacher.
Despite chemotherapy and radiation treatments, Ben sadly passed away a few days after this gathering took place, taking this vivid memory of his life’s work with him.
