A story about a little boy checking on his sick, elderly neighbor is going viral after the woman’s granddaughter posted a photo of the sweet relationship on Facebook. Darrien Middleton of Jackson, Tennessee says seven-year-old Caleb comes to see her grandma as many as five times a day to make sure she’s okay.
“This kid comes and visits my grandmother everyday… 4-5 times a day. He just told me it was to check on her, to make sure she wakes up from all her naps… my heart can’t take this,” Middleton captioned the photo.
The unidentified grandmother is reportedly battling both lung and breast cancer and doesn’t want to move out of her house yet. Middleton says her grandma’s neighbors help get her to appointments and check on her, adding, “Caleb is a stand out kid who has been handed a difficult situation and he helped my grandmother through hers.”
