Brain Cancer Soldier Gets a Major Donation

Posted: Updated:

Volunteers from Home Depot spent Saturday morning hammering, measuring and building a brand new ramp for 10-year-old Sean Powell.

Powell suffers from a rare form of brain cancer.  Volunteer Karen Gran explains, "I could not imagine sitting there every day watching what he's going through and what he has to think about, everyday."

 Powell finds it hard to keep his eyes open -- he finds even harder to walk. That's why these men and women donated a wheel chair ramp help him move around.

 Volunteer, Catie Hannah says, "It's going to help him; it's going to help his grandma, because she's not able to carry him up the stairs like he needs to. It will not take them 3 hours or 30 minutes however long it takes."

The price tag for this four by four ramp would run nearly 1,000 bucks. But, three local Home Depot stores donated the materials for free. It's a necessity in live to be able to walk, and when you can't it's good to have that ability to get around when you need to," says Gran.

It's a small measure that goes a long way for Sean and his family. Karen Gran says," I'm going to work for as long as I can and as hard as I can to get this done for this young man."
