My name is Helen and I came across a Nextdoor post from a wonderful lady who felt like she lost her faith in humanity. After some amazing kindness from neighbors asking how they could help, this fund was established. I asked her if I could start this fund and her initial reply was “We don’t want to take advantage of anyone or the situation since it really was my fault that I left the wheelchair out”. THIS IS THE TYPE OF PERSON I WANT TO HELP!!!! I’m going show you her original post, you will feel the pain in her words and I would love you joining me to help this couple out in replacing the stolen wheelchair. I looked up the price for a version that is lightweight. Hopefully that will help her with getting the chair in and out of her vehicle. Thank you all for considering my request for donations and thank you for being amazingly supportive neighbors Here’s her post:
”Today someone actually stole my terminal husband’s wheelchair! It was parked near the handicap park and ramp we use on the street in front of Christamar. It is too heavy for me to load into our van so we usually leave it where we park the van and have had no problem with anyone even attempting to move it or take it until today. We needed to pick up a prescription at Kaiser and we’re gone for only a little while but when we came back, it was gone. Now, please don’t tell me how I shouldn’t have left it there, or what did you think would happen? I already know that we were really stupid to think that the people in our area were above stealing someone’s wheelchair when most people in our area often see me pushing him up to the van in it. It is just so sad that someone would actually stop, load it up, and takeoff with it while it was parked in front of our condo complex where they could have been seen! I guess they have someone who needs it more than my dying husband does or old people on a fixed income so will add them to our prayers… Karma, baby, karma… and you will experience it, big time. I will be filing a police report but we’re just so disappointed and heartbroken that someone would stoop so low as to steal his wheelchair… It’s our own fault though for thinking so much of people we should have known better now we do; sad.
