John Burrows has been living on the streets of D.C. Earlier this month John saw someone stabbing an officer in the neck and back. He risked his life and saved the officer. The story was on the news and Renee Duperow his niece saw the interview. She hadn't seen or heard from her uncle in eight years! She called the TV station and they were able to set up a reunion via the internet. Renee has been volunteering in her community for years at a homeless outreach center providing meals, hoping someone in D.C. would be doing the same for her uncle. Jerry and Blanca had a great talk with Renee.
