Flash Mob Raises Money For Mom Battling With Cancer

You may have heard of PRAYnksters, a religious group known for organizing random acts of kindness for those going through tough times. In their most recent compassionate gesture, the group made news for surprising a 30-year-old mother-to-four battling cancer in Nampa, Idaho.

When Amanda Kofoed discovered a lump under her arm in October, her friend urged her to have it checked out. Unfortunately, Kofoed’s diagnosis was dire: Stage 3 Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Although Kofoed’s doctor wanted to tackle the cancer right away, she requested to defer treatment since she didn’t have insurance. “I asked if they could delay my treatment until January,” she told the Idaho Statesman. Soon after, Jessie Horney, a family friend, set up a GoFundMe account to help the Kofoed family raise money for medical expenses.

That’s when the PRAYnksters stepped in. One of the group’s co-founders Jesse Fadel, is a childhood friend of Kofoed’s husband, Clint and heard about the family’s unfortunate events.

The PRAYnksters crew invited Kofoed and her husband to a coffee shop to film a “thank you” video as a token of their appreciation to the people who donated to the GoFundMe account. But, that was just the start of the overwhelming generosity.

As the camera began to roll, Kofoed was shocked to find almost 200 PRAYnksters volunteers flooding the coffee shop with $100 bills. The flash mob managed to bring in more than $13,000.
