Westand Woman Finally Returns Home Thanks To Kindness Of Others

WESTLAND (WWJ) – A Westland woman forced to stay at a rehabilitation center for months is finally allowed back home.

As Newsradio 950’s Stephanie Davis reports, it’s all thanks to the kindness of others.

Really Living Foundation, a non-profit that provides support to people who are battling chronic and terminal illnesses, came through for Velda Nasal, a dialysis patient who recently had her leg amputated.

The Foundation arranged for a wheelchair ramp to be built at Nasal’s home so she could finally, after 3-months, go home.

State Representative Phil Cavanaugh’s office stepped in and connected Nasal to the Foundation.

“Deanna Saulman put us in touch with John Cook. I asked her one day, I said ‘I’ve hit a road block and I know you work with charities.’ She said her friend John does it, so we got in touch with him and in a matter of just a couple of days he had a contractor out here and they’ve been here working hard and it looks awesome,” said Celeste Lehman, Cavanaugh spokesperson.

Nasal’s son, Jeff Lanstra said he’s over-the-moon now that his mother is back where she belongs.

“I’m grateful for everyone that was involved, all the caring families and everybody that was here for my mom. You know, I’m just glad to have her home after so long,” Lanstra said.
