RICHMOND, Va. -- Jacqueline Robinson finds comfort in being able to watch her favorite television shows as she battles cancer for the second time.

Robinson has beaten breast cancer. Now, she is battling brain and lung cancer.

But while in the midst of treatment, CBS 6 learned her television broke, meaning she lost her way to escape.

So, in the latest edition of CBS 6 Gives, Reba Hollingsworth, with the help of our friends at Virginia Credit Union stepped in to help.

Hollingsworth purchased a new 50 inch Smart TV from Walmart at Sheila Lane.

The heartwarming surprise brought Robinson to tears.

CBS 6 Gives is assisted by Virginia Credit Union in helping spread joy and offering a helping hand in our community throughout the year.
