EL CAJON, Calif. (KGTV) -- On Monday, strangers surprised an Air Force veteran with a heart-warming gesture in El Cajon. 

Ron Hyde hardly has anything, including time. He recently decided to stop chemotherapy to enjoy his days. 

On Saturday, he bought an old $25 chair at Good Will. A Ramona woman knew he needed help getting it home since he does not have a car. She went on Facebook and asked for help. We were there to capture the surprise that brought him to his knees.
