MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Numerous WMC Action News 5 viewers saw the story about Bolton High student Dehndray Hall who was robbed sitting in his driveway on Saturday.

Hall has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair to get around, but his chair is damaged.

Brenda Yaun is one of the many viewers who saw his story and wants to lend a helping hand.

Yaun's husband suffered a stroke and had a brand new wheelchair, but passed away last December.

She was moved by Hall's story.

"I didn't know what God wanted me to do with this wheelchair, but I knew right then what I needed to do and that's when I called," said Yaun.

Yaun reached out to give Hall the new wheelchair free of charge.

"I hope it means a lot to him," said Yaun. "I know it will."

A doctor at Methodist South also had a surprise for Hall. He expressed that he was a big Memphis Grizzlies fan but had never attended a game.

Dr. Denise Woods owns All about You Family Practice and was happy to give up her seats to Saturday's game against Milwaukee.

"Oh he's just gotta have my Saturday tickets," said Woods. "Shout out to him. Enjoy the game."

Hall was grateful for the gifts and generosity of others.

"I've never been before, so I'm happy," said Hall. "Thank you."

Yaun believes her husband gave her the gift to pay it forward.

"I know that he's smiling down knowing that this is going somewhere where it will be used to do good," said Yaun.

The Memphis Grizzles heard about the story and offered Hall and his family the opportunity to meet the players before the game.
