(WXYZ) - It’s a beautiful summer day and 17-year-old Anthony James Garrett would love to be outside playing sports. But instead, he is being pumped full of medicine - medicine designed to help him in his battle against bone cancer.
A single mother raising 4-children all by herself, seven months ago Anthony’s mom, Jennifer Ancona, had to quit her job just to care for her son full time. And if that wasn’t enough already, at the very same time, the engine on her 1999 Pontiac Montana gave out, leaving her with no way to get her son to the hospital.
That’s something Jennifer has to be able to do several times every week.
But now, after months of begging other people for rides just to get her son the medical attention he needs, we’re about to give Jennifer and Anthony a beautiful car.
In fact, it’s a luxury car.
It’s all thanks to Peter Mona, the owner of Napa Complete Car Care Center in Farmington Hills.
We’re about to give Jennifer a gorgeous, Infiniti Q-45 luxury sedan.
Jennifer stands there in front of Peter’s car repair center with absolutely no idea what’s about to happen.
Suddenly we drive Jennifer’s new ride right up to where she is standing, trembling with joy.
“Oh my God, Oh my God,” Jennifer says, with tears streaming down her face.
And what does young, Anthony think, on this eve of his 18 th birthday?
“I’m thinking this is a pretty sweet eighteenth birthday present you guys,” Anthony says, as he climbs into the black leather comfort of this beautiful car.
