CLEVELAND — Christmas came early, and twice over, for a 9-year-old Ohio boy whose wheelchair was stolen from the family garage last month.
A wheelchair for everyday use and one specifically for wheelchair basketball were presented to Stephen Gibson of Cleveland on Friday.
They were given by health-care product companies Invacare and Miller’s.
Stephen, a fourth-grader with cerebral palsy and scoliosis, quickly said “yeah” when asked if he was happy with the gifts.
Elyria-based Invacare’s product manager Sarah Brown reached out to the Northeast Ohio Media Group after reading a story about the boy’s ordeal.
