RITZVILLE, Wash. — A beautiful act of kindness to help a man battling stage 4 cancer has gone viral.

The farming community in Washington came together to help  Larry Yockey harvest wheat on his 1,200-acre farm in Ritzville.

The 63-year-old could no longer work in the fields after reportedly being diagnosed with melanoma.

“They stepped in unbeknownst to me and said, ‘don’t worry about the harvest; we’ll handle it for you,'” Yockey told KHQ.

According to CBS News, Yockey’s neighbors did three weeks worth of work in just six hours.

Yockey, his wife and their three daughters feel such gratitude for what these farmers have done for their family.  “It’s not describable the gratitude I have for what’s going on,” he told CBS.
