Columbia, SC (WLTX) - One Columbia woman is thankful for dozens of Marines and other volunteers who worked four days straight to make sure she can get around her home.

We introduced you to 72-year-old Mary Davis ,who had her leg amputated as a result of a diabetic coma and is bound to a wheelchair.

Her house on Woodrow Street is in disrepair and she doesn't have ramps to get around her home, but dozens of Marines gave up their weekend to take on the tough project and make sure the Ms. Davis can get around her home.

Davis will eventually have a full home makeover with new plumbing, new electrical, new floors and so much more.

The Greater Columbia Marine Foundation says they couldn't have done so much without a lot of help from the community.

The money to help repair Davis' home has come from funds raised by the Marine Corps Mud Run. The next event is coming up on April 27. 

If you want to help you can also donate to the Greater Columbia Marine Foundation.
