Gloucester, MA. Every step Kate Barnett takes is a struggle and a reminder that life can be cruel and unfair. “It’s been a nightmare,” she says sitting outside her Gloucester home.

The 60-year-old is battling cancer. On days she doesn’t get assistance she crawls her way up her stairs. “I got a neuropathy in my hands and legs from the chemo,” she said.

A few weeks ago, Kate was shopping at Market Basket in Lynn with her personal care assistant. When they came outside her car was stolen along with her much-needed wheelchair and wallet. More than $1000 was gone.

“I had my wheelchair in the back of my car. It’s hard to find a little car that you can put a wheelchair into,” she said.
