Stuck in between the sidewalk and the road, the woman was stranded. She attempted to flag down cars for help, but they just kept passing by. She slowly began to lose hope, but that all changed when one man showed up to help.

Belinda Whittaker wasn't your average citizen. She may have been 67-years old, but she was a feisty woman. She was also an extremely religious woman. But she had no idea that she would share these qualities with her rescuer. Bilal Quintyne also shared her lust for life and a passion for God. But neither of them knew their paths would cross, but as soon as they did, Belinda couldn't have been happier.

Belinda lived by herself, but she was happy. It got lonely, but she tried to make the best of it. Currently, she was living in an elderly retirement complex, which made life easier because she was around other people. But, there was more to it. Belinda had to be in a wheelchair because she couldn't move by herself. This complicated things for Belinda at times. But Belinda wasn't always this way.

When Belinda was born she had a fully-functioning body. Unfortunately, she later developed polio, which is a virus that typically affects children under the age of 5. In some cases, the disease can cause paralysis. Unfortunately for Belinda, she lost the ability to use her legs. And what's even worse is that there's no cure for polio, so that meant that Belinda was going to be stuck this way forever. But Belinda had no clue how stuck she would really be.

She was stuck in a really tough situation. One day, something unimaginable happened while she was trying to run errands.
