Woman's open letter to person who left note on car is going viral
WTTV – Justine Van Den Borne was having a good day shopping with her daughter. But everything changed when she returned to her car and found a note on her windshield that read: "Did you forget your wheelchair???"
Van Den Borne was parked in an accessible parking spot with a valid permit. The permit was issued to her because she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when she was 35.
Many people who have MS eventually use a wheelchair, but the progression of the disease is different for everyone.
Van Den Borne wrote this open letter on Facebook as a reminder that "just because you can't see it, it doesn't mean a person isn't struggling to put one foot in front of the other."
The Facebook post has been shared over 51,000 times since it was posted last Monday.
