(KSL News) When going through your own struggles, helping others isn't always top of mind.

Despite significant health challenges of her own, Weber State employee Cindy Meyer has made it her personal mission to raise $60,000 for a co-worker.

That co-worker is Robin Watkins. He needs a liver transplant but has maxed out his insurance coverage and has to raise at least $60,000 before he can be put on the donation list.

Cindy is helping accomplish that. For her efforts, Robin and our Brooke Walker surprised her with a High 5 this morning.

Robin said, "She's just a wonderful person. I appreciate her beyond belief."

Cindy explained, "I just wanted to do the right thing because it could be any one of us at any time. When you have a catastrophic illness, anyone can lose anything, and I don't want to see anyone lose their life over something that we can pull together to help."

If you would like to donate, a fund has been set up at Weber State Credit Union.

Also, you can nominate someone deserving of a High 5 by following the link on this page.
