CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS (CNN) - A random act of kindness at a restaurant in Massachusetts sent a message to be remembered.
A diner handed his waitress a note after seeing two women at a nearby table crying.
It reads, "Do me a favor and bring me their check too. Someone just got diagnosed. Don't tell them."
The waitress, Nikki Pirog, said she did as the diner asked.
She said the diner wrote her a second note thanking her and telling her to tell the women at the other table "best wishes" when they were done.
Pirog said when the women were ready for the check, she told them the man near them had already handled it.
She said one of the women became overwhelmed with emotion.
Pirog said she was also moved by the gesture and decided to share a picture of the note to remind people there is good in the world.
