One year ago, Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, Texas, and led to historic flooding. Lisa Bates, an independent agent licensed to sell Aflac products, and her family – including her 10-month-old daughter – were stranded and in need of help.

With no power and little battery left on her phone, Lisa sent out a message on social media. Within minutes, hundreds responded from her Aflac family, including Billy Cable, 2018 Aflac #CSRHero and Aflac policyholder. Thanks to Billy and his son’s immediate response, Lisa and her family were able to evacuate their home safely.

“I know for a fact that Aflac does deliver on what they say, and they make everything very personal,” said Billy. “They are good people that stand up to what they say, so I should be that same person back to them.”
