This Girl With Cancer Could Have Asked for Anything. She Chose to Feed the Hungry
Natalia's wish to feed the homeless WLWT via YouTube
During this unusually bitter winter, Natalia Marsh-Welton's selfless gesture helped warm up her community's homeless.

Natalia Marsh-Welton has brain cancer, but she’s much more concerned about helping the homeless stay warm during this bitter winter. Natalia, who has endured chemotherapy told WLWT, “I am cold all of the time. Imagine how cold people without homes must be.”

That’s why the 10-year-old asked the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help her deliver blankets and soup to Cincinnati’s Drop-Inn Center. And it wasn’t just any soup, either. The foundation had arranged for Natalia to make the soup with renowned chef Jean-Robert de Cavel. Together they named the brew, “Chef Natalia’s Soup of Love.”

Amazingly, the Cincinnati girl’s act of kindness has already inspired others all the way in Louisville, Ky. As WDRB reports, Sullivan University dean Keith Lerme and his students cooked up 60 gallons of Natalia’s soup and delivered it to their city’s Wayside Christian Mission homeless shelter. Thanks to Natalia, we’re fighting hunger and homelessness one warm bowl of soup at a time.
