The kindness of strangers can leave a lasting impact. Evelyn Wheeler of Danville believes the kindness of two strangers is a major reason her son is alive today. On Sept. 21, 13-year-old Chad Wheeler was skateboarding from his home on Stevenson Avenue to meet some friends at Millennium Park. She said as he was traveling on his skateboard down a hill, some neighbors on adjacent Erskine Street saw Chad take a spill that could have taken his life. Wheeler has learned a little about her son's benefactors since the accident, but still doesn't know their names.
