A BELFAST woman who cares for her sick mother is in shock after a random act of kindness from an unnamed London man.
Cara Duggan was searching for a Nutribullet juicer to make healthy supplements for her mother Kim, who is suffering from stage 4 oesophageal cancer.
She came across an ad for a second-hand one at a good price on Gumtree and sent the advertiser, who is based in London, a text.
Explaining her situation, she asked the seller if he would consider posting the Nutribullet to Ireland from London – but the man went one step further.
Cara shared her heart-warming story on Facebook.

Since her Facebook post went viral, Cara has renewed her efforts to raise money for her mother's treatment.
The family has been trying a variety of different methods to manage Kim's cancer including acupuncture, removing her mercury dental fillings and reiki.
As the costs rose, the family struggled to cope - but since the texts went viral, they have surpassed their target of £5,000.
