Regardless of its growing number of uses, the internet is still a very helpful tool for people looking to make connections. And Maiya James can certainly attest to that fact, as in January 2017 she contacted someone online to help her family. However, the man then showed up at her home soon after with an incredible surprise.
A resident of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Maiya is a teenager living at home with her mother, Katherine, and older sister Mariah. The latter of these family members has severe disabilities, suffering from epilepsy, blindness and cerebral palsy. Confined to a wheelchair, Mariah requires 24-hour care, with Katherine transporting her to and from the hospital.
