Man Surprised By Sister He Has Not Seen In 16 Years

A man could not believe his eyes when he was surprised by his beloved sister – who he had not seen in 16 years and had just been through a brain tumor operation back in their homeland. Jose Granados, 49, from Quincy, Washington, moved to the U.S. more than a decade and a half ago for work, leaving his sister, Norma Granados Murillo, 55, back in their native Mexico. In 2019, Norma started to complain of feeling sick and dizzy unexpectedly, and doctor's later found a tumor on her brain. After a major operation that October – which, her family said, lasted 14 hours – Jose would often call his sister from afar, keeping her spirits up and offering whatever support he could. With the path to U.S. citizenship being a long and expensive process, Jose was unable to return to Guadalajara Jalisco, Mexico – but Norma promised her brother that one day they would meet again. As a thank you for his support, Norma said she would do everything she could to visit him in the U.S. once she was feeling better.
