Editorial: Kady's 'angels' set an example of friendship and giving


"They never ask us if they can do things," said Eric Giurado. "They just go ahead and do it."

These angels have names. They are: Mary Boddy, Joelly Helps, Paula McCarthy, Nikki Moriarty, Kandy Pardales, Jessica Prescott and Gwen Zappala.

"We love them and they're a great family," said Pardales. "They are two great people and Kady is an angel. We know how tough it is for them since Jill quit her job and they are living on one income. We just want to do everything we can in our power to help them."

As a society, we have an obligation to aid those in need of help through no fault of our own. But the seven friends have gone behind that collective obligation. Their individual acts of friendship and giving should be an example to all of us.

You can help. The first Kaydence Giurado Golf Classic is May 19 at Bradford Country Club to help raise money for Kady's continuing care. Some corporate and individual sponsors have already stepped forward. You can become an angel, too, by contacting Joelly Helps at kadygiurado@gmail.com or visit http://www.facebook.com/kady0801.
