$23,000 raised after Teen’s wheelchair ramp stolen from home

A South Philadelphia family is thanking the community after a successful GoFundMe campaign. Someone stole 15-year-old Domenic Dolan’s wheelchair ramp from the front of the family’s home on Greenwich Street.

Domenic has cerebral palsy.


“If anybody deserves a break, it’s this kid.”


A GoFundMe page was created and more than $23,000 has been raised so far.

Jim Dolan, Domenic’s father, says he is overwhelmed by the kindness.

“If anybody deserves a break, it’s this kid. This kid has never gotten a break in his life, I feel so bad for him,” Dolan said. “People that are helping us, God bless you. I’m sure God is smiling down on you because I tell you, it takes a hell of a person to help another person.”

Dolan says they filed a police report.
