A string of bad luck had recently descended upon the Ed Peters family of Calabash. Peters suffers from a rapid heartbeat and required the assistance of a pacemaker.
While he was hospitalized for a pacemaker procedure, his wife Ruth suffered a fall and fractured her hip. Upon her release, she required a walker for mobility and Ed Peters needed a walker, too.
Suddenly, the steps leading to their home were a barrier they could not easily conquer. Fortunately for the Peters family, help was on the way.
