(KOB)  It's one of the first set of morals we're taught as kids - help others.    

So when Gregg Murset of Phoenix, Arizona had the chance to show his kids that and more, he jumped to it.

"It's been really nice to see our kids working and serving other people," said Murset.

For the next 20 days or so, Gregg, his wife and their six kids are driving across the country and working with non-profits to find families that need help.

First stop, the Todd family in Albuquerque.

"The RV pulls up and this family comes out and they're like, what can we do? And so, you know, immediately everyone dispersed and had towels and buckets and started cleaning, cleaning our windows and cleaning cars," said Lisa Todd.

Three years ago, Lisa and Jerry Todd's life changed, when their then 8-year-old son, Jack, was diagnosed with a rare genetic disease that affected his body's ability to produce specific enzymes.

So life has been back and forth, from the doctor's office, to Jack's infusion treatments he gets once a week. Something as easy but time consuming, like cleaning, is pushed off the priority list because right now, it's all about Jack's health.
