DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) -

She lost her minivan and her daughter's wheelchair to some heartless thieves. Now, thanks to a Fox 2 viewer, that Detroit mom is getting some help.

Click on the video player to watch Roop Raj's report.

Shatanya Lockett's red van was stolen with her 20 year old daughter's wheelchair inside. Her daughter has cerebral palsy. It happened on West Chicago. After we aired this story, a generous viewer, Thaer Garmoo, donated a wheelchair. He delivered it to the family on Saturday.

"They can take the car, but leave her wheelchair. She didn't have to suffer like this. That's wrong," Garmoo said. "To the person that stole it, you need to be ashamed of yourself for hurting this young lady and making her have to suffer like this."

The van is still missing. Police are searching for it.
