Air Force Veteran Ron Hyde lived in an apartment comprising of a $25 pink chair and a used mattress. It was a near-empty apartment but he was glad that despite few possessions, he had a place to live.
Ron was diagnosed with cancer and his chemo treatments were going on. But he knew that it was too late and there is no point in taking any more treatments.
He decided to put an end to his chemotherapy treatments. He didn’t know how much he has got, so he just wanted to live without any stress.
It was difficult for him, being alone. Tears welled in his eyes as he sat in his empty apartment.
But his visit to Goodwill to purchase a $25 pink chair took an interesting turn. He had just purchased the pink chair, but couldn’t find a transportation medium large enough to drive it to his home in California.
An anonymous woman from Calif took to Facebook asking for someone to help the veteran bring his chair home. Ron never expected the response the message would get that literally made his eye watery.
Two days later after purchasing the chair, a huge U-haul rolled into his apartment vicinity. Then he saw strangers unloading the truck. And all of a sudden, they started bringing all kinds of home essentials and furniture through his front door.
He then watched people stocking his store cupboard with food and assembling a cozy bed in his room. He was feeling overwhelmed and his emotional state was about to go down. He turned away from the camera as he tried to choke back his tears.
He kneeled down at his kitchen counter and thanked God for all this. Thanks to those few compassionate strangers, he has more than just a place to hide his head, he has a home.
One of the strangers expressed that no one knows how much time he has got but it doesn’t mean that he can’t sleep on a cozy bed.
Ron was filled with joy, he stated this moment as the ‘little miracle.’
