A 48-year-old single mother of four in Canada has been struggling for ten years with systemic scleroderma, a disorder that was slowly killing her. Doctors said she’d likely die within a year.

Her only hope was to travel to Chicago for an innovative stem cell transplant treatment by a pioneering U.S. doctor. The process would give her an 80 percent chance for a cure, but it costs $125,000 (US).

She and her family started raising funds two months ago, but had collected just $13,000.

Then, on July 3, everything changed when a man in sunglasses and hat came to the house to give her a donation. He quickly handed her an envelope and left.

Inside was a bank draft for $128,000.
