Pay It Forward: Sandra Vasquez 12/14

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Tonight's Pay It Forward segment began on Slide Road just south of 82nd Street. We set up with our Pay it Forward sign seeking this week's playmaker.

Judy Fischer spotted our sign shortly thereafter and had someone in mind to help out. She chose Sandra Vasquez as this week's recipient of $300.

Sandra works at Texas Tech University and her son is a veteran who has had serious health issues since serving our country in Afghanistan.

Judy said, "I think she would be a wonderful recipient."

We made a trip to Texas Tech University where we found Sandra hard at work.

Judy told her about pay it forward. She counted out $300 to Sandra.

Sandra was completely surprised and accepted the money. She said her son nearly lost his life in Afghanistan serving our country in 2009. He had brain surgery in recent years as a result of what happened in Afghanistan.

Sandra felt it was a blessing receiving $300 just in time for Christmas and said she will spend it with her family.
