Hundreds Of Strangers Prevented A Cancer Patient From Being Evicted


For the second time in six months, hundreds of strangers gathered in front of Tom Crawford's home in Carlton, Nottinghamshire, UK to prevent bailiffs from evicting him.

After a short-lived standpoint, the crowd was successful in forcing the bailiffs to leave.

Around 500 people, maybe more, came from near and far in support of Crawford.

Crawford, who is 63 years old and currently battling prostate cancer, has been embroiled in a lengthy dispute over his mortgage.

The bank claims Crawford still owes £43,000 (around $65,000). Crawford, who has lived in his home for 27 years, contends he has no payments left.

People began to learn of his troubles after he posted this video on YouTube:

Crawford was very touched by the amount of support he's received, as were many onlookers.

It's amazing and heartwarming to see so many people come together to support the livelihood of a complete stranger. This is a wonderful example of the immeasurable power of solidarity.
