This was so nice of him!
While Lil' Wayne was serving time in Riker's Island, he was constantly recieving letters from a fan in New Jersey, Ronda Austin. In her letters, which came once a week, she would tell him about her life and family, including her mother, who has been confined to a wheelchair for quite some time now.
After hearing about the women's plight, Wheezy, while still in prison, had his charitable foundation bring the woman a brand new motorized wheelchair, with his thanks for the family's support. And no one was more surprised than Ronda.
She told sources:
"I couldn't believe it. I never asked for nothing. I just told him all kinds of different things about me. I never even said I needed help."
As for her mother, Evelyn, the chair has given her a new lease on life, allowing her to finally leave her home and take strolls around the neighborhood and even take a trip to Atlantic City. She told sources:
"I pray for him every night thanking him for this chair."
When reached for comment about his most generous gift, Nina Packer, who heads Lil' Wayne's charitable foundation, would only say it was "something he was compelled to do."
Such a good deed. That's what the spirit of the season is all about!
