Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Hurtless Pain

Disease is a very normal havoc everywhere in the universe but some disease are diseases are just too much too much too handle and even counselling can now help. Gregor is a seventeen year old girl who for a long time has been suffering a growth in the body suffering a pain of growth in the body and sometimes when i look at her i feel sorry though there is nothing i can do not because i want but because i can't and i am not able. there has never been on organization that is catering for such issues and i have been walking from place to place searching for someone who can help her but there has never been anyone ready to help Gregor. I really believe that one day we will find a way out for her and she will be back to her previous happy life. The only thing i can I am able and I am doing to help her reduce stress is that i am making sure that she is occupied with dance every evening and our dance group is making her feel welcomed and loved since she is the only girl at our dance Group.
