MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) – A Mesa woman who battled cancer says she was brought to tears by the kindness of a stranger after a thief stole sentimental Christmas decorations from her front yard.
For the last two years, the unofficial centerpiece of Bobby Jo Appleton’s holiday display has been two light-up figures: a unicorn and a narwhal. A narwhal is a real-life whale that is nicknamed the “unicorn of the sea” because of its long protruding tooth.
To understand the meaning behind the unicorn and the narwhal, you have to go back to 2016.
“Two years ago, I was diagnosed with cervical esophageal cancer,” she said. “I went through 36 rounds of radiation and five weeks of chemo. The radiation was every day.”
The illness turned Appleton’s life upside down.
“I was so afraid I was going to die,” she said.
To fight back, she posted pictures of herself doing handstands every day along with the hashtag, “#FightingCancerWithHandstands.”
Days after her treatments ended, she remembers laughing with her daughter Kacey Jo Appleton as they picked out the unicorn and the narwhal.
“When I pull them out, I think of finishing treatment, having that time with her at Target. The fact that I’m still alive,” she said. “Those basic things. What Christmas is about.”

The True Light That Lights Every Man
‘That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.’
In John 1:9, it is clear that God gives mankind enough light to do good, see good and recognize God. It’s the Light of Jesus Christ that allows even the unsaved world to do good deeds.
I don’t know if any of the people mentioned in this story are in the Body of Christ by believing the gospel. Nevertheless it’s an act of kindness brought on by the Light of the World, Jesus Christ. Glory to God for His Son, Jesus Christ.
