Mom who had car stolen finds kindness in community

DENVER -- It was not a good start at a new life for Sarah Allen and her 4-year-old son Aiden.

Her only means of transportation, a 2004 PT Cruiser, was stolen from her apartment complex her first week in Denver.

"It was completely devastating. When you have a car and it's your only lifeline, it's how you get to the doctor. It's how you get to your appointments, so it is pretty critical," Allen said.

Her son Aiden has cerebral palsy, is tube-fed and requires round-the-clock care.

A reliable car is not a luxury, it is a necessity. Since her story was told on Oct. 19, viewers have helped with errands.

"It is going to have to be temporary. I mean we can't rely on other people forever," she said.

Allen's story resonated with generous people, especially Tim Greufe.

"Oh, my gosh, just heartbreaking. All the hardships she had to put up with," he said.

Greufe owns owns TSG Auto Sales and he donated a 2007 Dodge Caliber hybrid automobile to Allen.

Allen was grateful almost beyond words. After the reality of the remarkable gift sank in a little, Greufe showed Allen around in her new vehicle.

It just makes you feel good. You can help this poor girl and her son. My goodness," he said.

Allen said her father, who recently died, is still watching out for her. He loved Dodge cars.
