GRESHAM, OR (KPTV) -

Someone took his specialized stroller out of his backyard. Now thanks to a generous gift, a 12-year-old boy will once again be able to get out with his family.

12-year-old Dalton Barrow has a rare disease that causes grand mal seizures, cognitive setbacks and makes it hard for him to walk.

A few years ago Lisa Barrow, Daltons mom, found a stroller with tough wheels and a reclining seat so her son could go on hikes and to the beach.

Lisa served in the Air Force and last week on Veterans Day the family planned to go on a hike in the Columbia Gorge to celebrate.

But just before Veterans Day the stroller was stolen and the family was devastated.

Now, a business in Lake Oswego, Kool Stop, is stepping up and donating a stroller specially made for kids with special needs.

"When we found out she was a veteran we thought what could we do to give back to the family and to Dalton, and we felt it would be a good fit," said Tim Watson with Kool Stop.

"It's been really amazing, especially for the kids and I. You know, we have a bad thing happen and we tend to focus on that but then people come out of the woodwork and have been so great and so wonderful. It's just good for them to see. There's a lot more goo than bad," said Lisa Barrow.

The owner of Kool Stop is also a vet and knew they wanted to give back to the community.

The company has been making special made stroller for kids since 1995.
