LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A new father paced the hallways in a hospital. He wasn't expecting to be there that day, but his first son was born early due to medical complications.
Mike Davis, a friend of the new father, named Durrell, said of the man pacing the hall, "He was actually working three jobs at one point. One of the jobs they let go because he had to go to the doctor for his child. I think the other position he was working a temp position and they let him go."
A newborn is enough to keep someone up at night, but babies are expensive, from delivery to diapers to their first day in college.
That's where Davis asked us to help. We stopped Durrell's pacing so we could Pass the Cash.
