LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Most of uswork hard for our paycheck every day trying to pay our bills and get the thingswe want, but as we Pass the Cash there's a lesson for all of us -- you may berich or poor, but health is our first wealth.

Ted Weir filled out our nominationform on www.wave3.com and told us about his friend Mary Burts.

"Mary works in the federal garage nextto the federal building in the Mazzoli building," Weir said, "She's such asweet lady. She seems to always have a smile, always helpful if you need helpin the garage with anything."

But now Mary needed help.

"She was hit by a car as I understandon 4th Street and broke her leg in three places," Weir said, "No telling whenshe'll be able to come back to work." In other words there was no telling whenshe would get paid again.

When Mary's daughter and granddaughtergreeted us at the door they were already in on our secret mission, but Mary whohad just arrived home from the hospital had no idea.

It's hard to keep a good woman down andMary's broken leg won't keep her down – just off her feet for awhile.

"It's got a pin and it's broken in twoplaces," she explained, "I don't have insurance so as far as going to physicaltherapy I can't go."

Mary doesn't even know how she'll getto her doctor's appointment with no car, but life always offers hope, it'scalled tomorrow.  You never know whatblessing will come with the sunrise.
