An Indianapolis girl with cerebral palsy is $10,000 closer to a wheelchair-accessible van thanks to an Indiana Pacers player.
In April 2014, the family of Perry Township 10-year-old Daisy Esterline learned that a GoFundMe account had been started to help them raise the money for a new van for Daisy, who has cerebral palsy.
Last week, an anonymous donor stepped forward and told the family they would match every dollar donated up to $6,000. And Sunday night, $10,000 was deposited in their GoFundMe account from a donor named "Paul George."
The Pacers confirmed Monday that the shooting guard had indeed made the donation.
The donation means the Esterlines now have about $18,000 raised for the new wheelchair van.
An Esterline family member tweeted at Paul George saying Daisy was "truly grateful" for the donation.
