Born in France to an Ethiopian mother and a French Vietnamese father, 31 year old Brice lives in Vancouver, and is suffering from stomach cancer.

In addition to the cancer, he has an undiagnosed ailment, in which his body cannot process most foods, limiting him to carrots and a few other foods.

But with the love and support of his fiancé and caregiver Oi-Ngor Pan, Brice made a remarkable discovery.

(Story continues from "Read More")

That discovery was the power of unconditional love.

Brice and a friend setup a Facebook Page, offering to help people. He also encouraged others to use that Facebook Page to help those in need.

Soon, people from around the world were donating kayaks, cruises, graphic design assistance and other gifts with no expectation of anything in return.

Brice, who lives with his fiancé's family, took $4,800 (Canadian) he would otherwise have paid in rent and paid a year's rent for a struggling single mother in Pennsylvania.

He also paid the dental bill for a female war veteran with an autistic son.

Brice knew neither of these women.

Meanwhile, a Vancouver area farmer, Jas Singh began growing free carrots for Brice.

Maria Avendano read about Brice, and contacted him on Facebook.

"I thought he was making a big change in a lot of people's lives, the way they think about loving your neighbour," Maria told the Vancouver Sun.

She then met Brice when the two got together in his home to peal carrots.

"I experienced something that I've never experienced before and that was the healing power of a hug … "

"(So) much love and so much good energy to that hug that I felt I was a different person when I came out of that house," Maria added, with a tear in her eye.

Can one person really make a difference?

Brice has by offering unconditional love to everyone, and in the process has brought great joy into his life and the lives of others.
