Renowned Chef Delivers Free Soup To Man With Multiple Sclerosis

A well-known chef in Illinois started making personal deliveries to a fan with MS who was too sick to get to his restaurant and their story is reminding people that a simple act of kindness can go a long way.

For the past year, Chef Juan Carlos Beristain has been making personal deliveries to one of his biggest fans who suffers from multiple sclerosis.


Beristain is a well-known chef at JC’s Café in Cary, Illinois just outside of Chicago.

Like many restaurant owners, Beristain often uses Facebook to check in with his customers. One customer, Noah Dionesotes, has MS and depends on a wheelchair to get around.

After starting his first round of chemotherapy, Noah left a comment on the restaurant’s Facebook page about how much he loved their famous vegetable soup.

When Beristain learned that Noah was too sick to make it into the restaurant, the chef took it upon himself to deliver soup to his fan free of charge.


At first, Noah was resistant to the offer because he wasn’t comfortable accepting help, according to CNN. Then, about a year later, during a second round of chemo, Noah asked his mother to buy the soup for him.

It was then that Beristan decided he would make a personal house call.

The chef delivered soup to Noah and refused to take any money.

Beristan told CNN that his act of kindness was inspired by his parents who always looked for ways to help others.

“You have to do these things because you like to do them, and have that connection with people,” Beristain told Fox59. “Every time you help somebody that appreciates what you do, that is your reward.”

These special deliveries have continued for more than seven months, giving Noah the nutrition he requires to regain his strength, while also providing him with a new friend.

“I think the guy’s a saint … he’s an amazing human,” Noah said.

While Beristan doesn’t seek any attention for his good deed, he’s glad the story is going viral because it helps shed light on Noah’s fundraiser for stem cell therapy.
