Poland Javelin thrower, Maria Andrejczyk competed at the Tokyo Olympics event winning a silver medal. However, the road was a tough one because she was ill few months before the Tokyo Olympics had begun. She suffered from a shoulder injury before then she had successfully recovered from bone cancer. Maria who was once in such state felt compassion for an infant boy suffering from a heart disease. The infant name is Milosz Malaysa, his parents posted on social media pleading to the public for financial assistance to do a heart surgery for the infant's recovery.

Eventually, Maria in order to help out Milosz auditioned her silver medal to raise the required money needed for his surgery. However, Maria's kind gesture touched the heart of many which led to a surprising event.

Maria's winning bidder, Zabka bid $51,000 but told Maria to keep the medal. The money given was free in exchange for no medal. Aside from the $51,000, Milosz's family also received $76,500 financial assistance from the public. This was all due to Maria's kind heart to respond to an infant plight. 

She's forever blessed!
