WTSP: Single Mother of Sick Child Gets New Car for Christmas

Tampa, Florida — A working, single mother is getting a very special Christmas gift this year — and it’s helping her care for her sickdaughter.

On Tuesday, Wheels of Success and GTE Financial gave Karen a car. Her daughter was born with a congenital birth defect of the stomach. In the first month and a half of her life, she went through two surgeries.

Shortly after, Karen’s car gave out, threatening her from being able to support her and her baby.

The car is one Wheels of Success is presenting to working families in the Tampa Bay area as part of its 12 Cars of Christmas campaign.
