Abby Fink thought she was texting a family friend, but she mistyped the number.

"Hey Brother Jakeman, this is Sister Fink, we are bringing you dinner tomorrow, I was wondering what time would be a good time to bring it over," Fink sent in the message.

On the other end of the text was a man named Bill.

"Oooh! What are you bringing me?" Bill replied, knowing that the message was not meant for him.

Fink explained that the text was meant for a family friend whose 4-year-old son, Noah, was fighting to stay alive.


Bill immediately asked how he could help.

He has since rallied friends on Facebook to send gifts and cards to Noah. He even contacted a local charity who now wants to lend a hand too.

Noah is finally out of the ICU but remains at Phoenix Children's Hospital as a lengthy recovery begins.

As for Bill, he plans to drop off a gift and meet the young boy in person next week.

"I told Bill, 'I don't know if you believe in God or not, but I believe you were sent here to help this family.' I told him he was an angel," said Fink.
