American singer Jason Derulo has gifted the family of a US-based Kenyan nurse a brand new handicap car.
This was after the nurse, Florence Njoroge of Jefferson, Massachusetts was named the Health Care Hero of the week early this week.
Florence, a mother of three, was picked as the healthcare hero of the week after her 15-year-old son, Jason sent a letter to Jimmy Kimmel Live show nominating his mother.
“My mum is an amazing nurse and a full-time health caretaker for my father who continues to gallantly fight Lou Gehrig’s disease also known as ALS…we have so many pressing responsibilities but she never fails to smile,” Jason said in the letter.
She added: “My household incurs a lot to effectively take care of dad. There are multiple things more normal and happier, for instance, we really need a handicap accessible van but that requires a lot of money.”
Florence works as a geriatric nurse in Massachusetts and also takes care of her husband after he was diagnosed with the nervous system disease which affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, causing loss of muscle control.
Moved by the plight of Florence’s family, singer Derulo who was Kimell's guest host gave them a brand new 2020 Chrysler Pacifica minivan courtesy of Chrysler and Vantage Mobility International.
Some of the van’s features include a fully loaded VMI conversion and an in-floor power ramp that can be operated from the vehicle’s remote key. The car costs over $34,000.
“I’m so honored. Thank you so much,” an elated Florence said during a virtual interview on Kimell Live Show.
