Homeless mom needs a wheelchair for her toddler

HARLEM, Manhattan — Monty Capers said she desperately needs a pediatric wheelchair for her oldest son, 3-year-old Christopher.

"He makes me smile. He makes my heart skip a beat. He is suffering," she said.

Christopher Capers was born with cerebral palsy. Right now, he is sharing a stroller with his baby sister, Malaysia. It's a tight fit for his little legs.

"He's very long for a child for his age. So it's uncomfortable for him to be positioned like this. He needs the chair for pre-school on July 7," Capers said.

PIX11 news reached to a company with a generous spirit called Rehabco. Rehabco will have Christopher's chair within days and we'll be there when Christopher gets his chair and goes to preschool for the first time.
