    A Vancouver Man Set Off A Ripple Effect Of Kindness By Buying Someone's Lunch

    "If it wasn’t for the kindness of others, I wouldn’t be alive today."

    When he was diagnosed with cancer, Brice Royer's doctor told him that "love and kindness is the world's best medicine." Royer's been performing random acts of kindness even since, such as helping raise money to build a home for a woman and her daughter.

    Royer gave the man a coupon for Unconditional Love that he created after his Craigslist ad "selling unconditional love for $0" went viral last year. "Then we paid for his meal," Royer said. "He was so grateful and said he'd like to pay it forward."

    The man walked over to the cash register and announced he was going to pay for everyone's lunch. "The cashier's eyes almost fell out of their sockets and we all looked at each other in awe," Royer wrote on Facebook.

    "If it wasn’t for the kindness of others, I wouldn’t be alive today," according to Royer, who has a stomach tumour. He's due to see his doctor again next week for his latest MRI results. "I’m not attached to any outcome anymore, but he tells me there’s good news."
