Bell Ringer Sings for Christ, Despite Cancer

Earlier this year, Paul Hill was planning what songs he would sing as a Red Kettle bell ringer, but in May, Paul was given only nine months to live.

Paul has been Tulsa, Oklahoma’s top-grossing bell ringer for the last three years. He had already started working on new songs to sing with his trademark vocals that help him fill the buckets when the doctors gave him the news. Doctors discovered a tumor had wrapped around his organs and was attacking his liver. Doctors did not give Paul much hope.

Paul told himself he’d had a good life. He accepted the decision. But, family and friends came to his side to support him in his time of need.

With new found support, he knew he could move forward – he’d faced this situation twice before. In 2005 he had congenital┬áheart failure. But, he made it through. Last summer Paul was bitten by a scorpion. Twice. But, he made it through.

As Paul now seeks treatment in his hometown in Atlanta, Paul continues to sing for Christ and for himself. Paul even thanks the people of Tulsa for helping him become the top bell ringer in Tulsa.

To help support Paul and medical, his family established the Paul Hill Cancer Fund. Donations can be made at the Arvest Bank at 81st Street and Lewis Avenue.
