Diagnosed with systemic scleroderma, a connective tissue disease, Stephanie Headley sought treatment in the U.S. for stem cell therapy. Due to the cost of the procedure, $125,000 USD, Ms. Headley tried to raise the funds online, but only reached $13,000. That's when the mysterious stranger showed up.
On July 3, she got a phone call from a man who wanted to drop off a donation at her home. Ten minutes later, the man — wearing ski sunglasses and a hat to hide his face — wordlessly handed her an envelope and turned to leave.
"Just before he turned around I said, 'God bless you,' and he smiled. A big smile across his face. And he turned around and left," she said.
She then opened the envelope and saw the value of the bank draft.
"I'm looking at the decimals, I'm looking at the zeroes, I'm sure I've got it wrong. I fell to the ground, I cried, I screamed, I yelled. I just kept saying, 'Thank you God, thank you God, I'm going to live, I'm going to live,'" said Headley.
