Maples said that during McCormick’s shifts, some of the decorations are kept in the back because she doesn’t want to draw attention to herself.
“She is very grateful,” Maples said. “I asked her first, and said I didn’t want to do anything that would draw attention to you, because she’s not that kind of person. She baby-sits her daughter’s son a lot, and said ‘I know I’m going to need (help)’. If there’s any way we can help her out, we want to do that.”
McCormick began treatment in mid October and is set to have surgery soon.
