This is a wonderful story and it is incredibly moving.
Elizabeth Laird is 83 years-old. She is known as the “Hug Lady” because she goes to Fort Hood and hugs the soldiers as they leave and then returns to hug them when they come back. She’s been doing that for 12 years. No one knew that 11 years ago, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and has been fighting it ever since. One day, Elizabeth wasn’t there to hug others. So, the military hunted her down. Soldiers are continuously going to her bedside now to return some of the hugs she has selflessly given for years. It’s incredible.
