An Idaho man has spent nearly every day of 2016 cooped up inside his home due to a broken ramp in his family's van, that is, until he received a Christmas miracle.
Jake Berry, 24, bedridden and wheelchair-bound due to a lifelong struggle with Cerebral Palsy, had been forced to stay home for a year.
In a contest organized by EastIdahoNews.com, a Secret Santa asked the news outlet to give away $100,000 to deserving people in the area. When the site discovered the story of the Berry clan, they made a house call.
Berry's single mother of three, Danette, may have been in on the surprise when a reporter from EastIdahoNews.com came to the door, but she was unaware of additional shocks the organization had.
In addition to paying for a new ramp, which costs about $3,000, the family got $1,500 in Lowe's gift cards to do some home repairs.
"Thank you so much," Jake said, beaming. "That means a lot to me."
