Strangers Pay Parking Meter For Mother In The Hospital With Sick Child
Kaylee Goemans from Barrie, Ontario, is grateful to strangers who kept her car from being towed while she was in the hospital for nine hours with her sick baby son. Goemans thought that the visit would be quick, but hours went by before they could see a doctor and she had only paid for four hours of parking.
Goemans posted a message to a Facebook group for local mothers asking them if they knew whether her car would get ticketed or towed, and soon after there were over 100 comments of people offering to stop by and pay the meter for her.
Goemans said that she was "completely overwhelmed. I was completely grateful. It made a very tough and stressful situation a lot easier for me. It made me able to focus on my son's needs rather than having to worry about my car being towed."
Goemans's son Dominic was diagnosed with intussusception, a disorder in which a part of the intestine folds into another, causing severe abdominal pain. Several mothers have also asked for updates on Dominic and have even offered to pay for parking passes for future hospital visits!
