DAWSON SPRINGS, Ky. (WFIE) - A Dawson Springs woman who lost her home in the deadly tornado is now on the road to recovery, thanks to a Daviess County man and the generosity of the community.

After a successful GoFundMe campaign, Utica resident Jim Goode presented $4,000 and a new CPAP machine to Chris Bullock.

This comes after Goode found a wrinkled medical bill in his yard addressed to Bullock.

She told 14 News that although she knew Goode wanted to help her, she was not fully expecting what was presented to her.

“The love and support is just amazing,” Bullock said. “But no, I had no idea that it was that much. I don’t even know what to think about it. It’s just kind of mind-boggling.”

Goode says he believes the bill fell in his yard for a reason, and he felt he had to find its owner and help in any way that he could.

“This is to help you,” Goode said. “You have your new CPAP machine, and you should be good. I know it doesn’t fix everything, but it helps.”

Bullock says she is just deeply moved by the love and generosity of a complete stranger.

“We had been in contact every day,” Bullock said. “And he is an amazing man to have picked up a piece of trash off the ground and raised the money for someone he didn’t even know.”

Bullock added that she hopes to pay this action forward sometime in the future.
