Jami McElrath got her camera stolen when a thief broke into her car. When the thief found out that Jami is terminally ill, he had a change of heart and returned the camera:
McElrath, who has inoperable cancer, was collecting photos to place in a scrapbook for her children so they could remember her after she was gone. The camera had belonged to her father, who died of a heart attack two years ago.
The woman told her heart-wrenching story to Dallas-area news station WFAA TV, appealing to the burglar to return the camera. [...]
Then something remarkable happened. A few days after the story aired, Douglas got a call from a man who told him to look behind a red car in the station’s parking lot. The caller didn't leave his name; he said only that he felt bad about the incident and wanted to return the camera.
