Arizona family hits the road on a summer vacation serving others

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) - A family from right here in the valley piled up in their RV and set out to travel across the country. But this isn't a typical summer vacation, they're taking this trip to help others in need.

Three generations in Leann Martin's family all suffer from the same rare type of blood cancer.

Between taking care of her two sons, it's hard for Leann to also take care of her home.

"I haven't been able to do anything in a long time here, I have not. You know I just haven't, I've been too busy," said Leann Martin.

But help came right to her front door thanks to the Murset family from right here in Arizona. They're on a special mission this summer to help other families in need.

"We set out to do 25 stops in 20 days, and travel 6,500 miles," said

The parents say the trip has taught their children work ethic, and it's taught them the importance of serving others.

But the Murset family said they are the ones who receive the biggest rewards.

"Every stop we've made, we literally drive away, and we say things like, "those are the nicest people," they're just like wow they're inspiring to us," said the family.
