Tally Angels co-founder Patty Wilson started her Saturday at Westminster Gardens Helping Jim Ball survive what's now his second health crisis.

"Because I have survived polio it's like I have a ticket to survive," Ball said. "She's meeting me outside and she's bringing me paper towels and even a homemade mask and some cleaning supplies, so that's great."

In the six short days they've been operating Tally angels have helped nearly 20 people with special deliveries.

Wilson explains what drives her. "When we come to the door with a smile on our face and just a knock and step back and drop the item," she says, "they are so appreciative, because the only noise they're getting is negative noise. So when the Tally Angels shows up, they're like oh, it's not so bad."

Ball persists, "I have to survive because I had that gift when I was three years old that I didn't die from polio so now whatever they throw at me next, I have to get through."
