Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A Las Vegas woman says she's alive because of the people at Henderson Hyundai. Sounds a bit dramatic until you hear her story and realize that she's exactly right.
Wendy Jones says, "I almost died. I was in intensive care for 30 days. A total of 50 days in the hospital."
Wendy Jones landed in the hospital because she couldn't afford her medicine. She qualifies for Medicare but it doesn't kick in until next year which leaves her unable to pay the $1,500 a month medicine bill.
Wendy says, "I was losing all faith in humanity. Because there was nowhere out there to get any help. I just thought I was going to die. I was praying to God for somebody to come into my life and help me."
That prayer was answered when a salesman at Henderson Hyundai heard about Wendy. Max Ansary told us, "We got from everybody. Sales, service, the whole dealership chipped in."
Max knows about the importance of family. His father was killed when they lived in India. So he wanted to do something to help this mother. Wendy can't believe it. "I want people to know don't give up. There are people out there. People who will miraculously do something good for you."
Max who says he's living the American dream and part of that dream, for him, includes helping people. "This community is a good community and if we help each other out we can even make it better."
According to Wendy, the employees at Henderson Hyundai raised enough money to pay for her medicine for many months.
