    Thumbs up *Good News Story* Anonymous benefactor leaves car on paralysed mother's front lawn

    An anonymous benefactor has given some freedom back to an Oak Flats mother left paralysed after the birth of her third child. Jessie Bruton is teaching herself to walk again after losing feeling in her legs because of nerve damage while she was pregnant with Klay, now six months.
    It's a slow, painful process but her spirits were lifted recently when she returned home from a family outing to find a Nissan Pathfinder with a big red bow on her front lawn.
    The car, which had been fitted with hand controls, will fit the 27-year-old's walking frame and wheelchair as well as prams and equipment for her three young boys.

    This week she passed her disability driving test and on Tuesday she was able to drive herself to a rehabilitation session.
    "It was just incredible to get home and see the car parked there with a red bow and a lovely card saying they hoped it would help my family out, and make me smile," Mrs Bruton said.
    "The card had no name on it and at first I wanted to find out who it was from so I could thank them, but then realised that they wanted to remain anonymous.
    "It's really lovely to know there are people in this world who are willing to give something without receiving any recognition."

    How awesome!
