PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Robert “Teddy” Davis remembers the moment he met Philadelphia Police Officer Lynneice Hill. She was like a ray of sunshine at one of his darkest moments.
“They brought in a bag of groceries, bags and bags,” Teddy said. “And at the time I wasn’t getting anything, hardly any income.”
Teddy is living with stage four cancer and Officer Hill was doing what she had done since 2020, which was delivering groceries to cancer patients in need through the Legacy of Hope nonprofit organization.
“You could tell she was an angel,” he said. “As soon as she walked in the door she had a big smile, shook my hand, gave me a hug. It made our day and the whole week we had food.”
