The Suffolk mother whose vehicle was stolen with her son's custom wheelchair inside is getting some big help from the community.
As News 12 has reported, Roxanne Drayton's vehicle was stolen outside of her Coram home last month. Inside the vehicle was the $8,000 custom wheelchair she uses to bring her son Todd to doctors appointments. Todd has Down syndrome and epilepsy.
Her story caught the attention of Joe Catalanotto, a manager at Generation Kia on Sunrise Highway in Bohemia.
Catalanotto decided to donate an SUV to Drayton and her family.
Drayton says all her family needs now is a proper wheelchair for Todd. A GoFundMe page has set up for to help the family to pay for a new wheelchair.
"I'm thankful for every single person who donated online that helped me, thankful for giving me my faith in humanity," she says.
