This month, a 77-year-old living in Tuscon, Arizona, received a surprise when high schoolers showed up at her house. The group from University High School heard about her desire to celebrate Christmas like she always had.

Nancy Mattern's battle with covid left her weak and incapable of filling her home and yard with festive decor. The woman shared that the virus affected her heart and lungs. She thought her dream of a bright and merry Christmas was gone.

THE WOMAN'S EMOTIONAL REACTION

Thankfully, a high school group known as the Dreamcatchers decided to act. Eight people arrived at Mattern's doorstep to assist with putting up decorations. The woman was stunned and emotional.

Mattern said Christmas always brings out the best part of people, and she added:

"It's what Christmas is about, it's about giving. And to be able to have my Christmas decorations up is something I thought was over and done with."

IT WAS HEARTBREAKING

Mattern said the kids with "big hearts" saved her Christmas. The woman's daughter, Trina, was suffering from a work injury and could not help her mother. She shared just how much the gesture meant.

Trina explained: "It's been very heartbreaking to see her so sad during the holidays because we couldn't put up any decorations for her." A member of the Dreamcatchers spoke about the experience.

MAKING DREAMS COME TRUE

Kristin Jung said: "Working together to create each dream has been a really special experience to me." Trina also shared that the students' kindness was a gift that she never imagined her family would get.

A user commented on the clip, which featured Mattern's story. They commended the Dreamcatchers and expressed: "Thank you, kind souls, keep it up." The students put up Mattern's Christmas tree, lights, ornaments, and many other special pieces.

SHE WAS GIVEN A GIFT

Belinda Brauer, a volunteer coordinator at the Agape Hospice where Mattern lives, was touched by the kind act and stated that it brightened Mattern's entire holiday season.

Brauer shared: "It is just an overwhelming, very emotional feeling to have our hospice patient be given this gift. It is a gift because there are so many misconceptions about hospice."
