Penfield, N.Y. - Tom Robson says he had just two weeks to live when doctors performed a double lung transplant in 2009.
A few months ago Tom suffered complications from the transplant and went into lung failure. Treatments at the Cleveland Clinic have helped.
When neighbors learned what Tom was going through and that his daughter was planning a backyard wedding this August, they sprung into action.
Donna Patton sent emails to her neighbors in the Piccadilly Park area. Forty seven responded with contributions and offers to help.
They were there weeding and pruning the Robson's yard when the couple returned from Cleveland Thursday. The neighbors also had the driveway sealed and will stain the deck and plant new flowers.
Patton says neighbors help each other and there's no such thing as the word no when people need help.
The Robsons are overwhelmed. Tom told us: "It makes you feel really good, like people are pulling for you."
Julie Robson said: "I have the best neighbors in the Penfield, Rochester area."
Their daughter Catriona moved up her wedding a year fearing her father may not make it.
She will be married in a traditional Scottish ceremony in the backyard on August 4th.
The neighbors who helped spruce up the yard will be there and so will Tom. He will walk his daughter down the aisle, wearing a traditional kilt.
The family says they are grateful to their neighbors.
