STATEN ISLAND — Wayne Johnson from Staten Island says his mom, Cheryl Johnson, a home health aide for people with special needs, needs help herself.
"She's always helping others, so selfless, and now she needs help with her housing problems," said Johnson about his mom.
Johnson says raw sewage comes up into her Delafield Avenue apartment. It's happened more than once.
"She is most concerned about the health of one year old grandson, Ezekiel, living here," said Johnson. "My mom got dealt a bad card, living here."
