elderly woman who was robbed gets surgeryAn 85-year-old South Carolina woman who was robbed of $400 in cash that she'd saved for eye surgery was given free medical care after a doctor saw her story on the news.

Dr. Budev of Carolina Cataract Center wasn't the only one who saw the report and was moved to action. A one-time thief who'd stolen a woman's purse, sent a $500 check to help atone for his crime.

"There's so many good things that's happened out of this that I never dreamed would happen and it makes a big difference," Ida Sue Collins told Live 5 News.

With all the negativity in sports these days (i.e. Michael Vick, steroids, exorbitant contracts, etc.) I'm glad to see GNN come out with a sports section to report all of the good things that are happening in the world of sports.  Great for kids and adults to view the good side of sport celebrities. I love GNN.  It starts my day off in a great frame of mind.
