Craig and Mary Tipmore are separated from their friends by hundreds of miles, but they're connected by love.

The Tipmore's have been married for 22 years and now live in Florida.

Mary graduated from Brownsburg High School. Craig from Decatur Central in Indianapolis.

In 2015, Craig was diagnosed with brain cancer. The couple's friends have rallied around them since.

The Tipmore's were overwhelmed in the last few days when they learned their friends raised $23,000 and counting via social media.

That money will help add more nursing care for Craig and help pay bills.

Mary tells RTV6, "We are absolutely floored at the outpouring of love and support. I think I cried for three days when we found out about the fundraising. It was honestly overwhelming."

She wants all of their friends to know they're amazing and loved.
