Summary- Someone stole a wooden wheelchair ramp from a disabled lady's house and after it was on the news a guy with a ramp company gave her a new metal one.

That is so awesome!  Not that hers was stolen (what kind of creep steals a wheelchair ramp???) but that the owner of that company was a) willing to set her up for free, and b) obviously going to do it immediately due to his quote about not wanting her to be stuck in her house during Memorial Day weekend.  So awesome.

I love good deeds like this.  They're good all around.  The publicity for the ramp company is great, and the result for the woman is awesome.

I just hope that whoever stole her wooden wheelchair has a valid reason for doing that. I mean I hope the wheelchair will be used for a good cause. At least now, the woman's wheelchair was replaced with something modern.
