Juli Jensen-Derrig is a teacher at St. Mary's Parish School in Westfield. The family of one of the students in her fifth-grade class is struggling, so Julie decided to pay it forward.
Shari Jerrell has two kids at St. Mary's. Jerrell volunteers at the school and in the community. Recently Shari learned she'll have to spend more time at the doctor's than coaching her kids' sports teams. Shari has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Julie saw CBS 3 Springfield's offer to Pay it Forward and knew she could help.
CBS 3 Springfield gave Julie $500 to surprise Shari with and our cameras captured it all.
