Richard Caton, 73, recently had his wish for a power chair granted by the Barstow, Ca. chapter of Twilight Wish.  Caton, who worked 43 years as a barber, suffers from peripheral artery disease (PAD) and has poor circulation in both legs, leaving him unable to get around on his own.  Before retiring, Caton often went to hospitals and nursing homes to cut the hair of those who couldn't make it to the barber shop.  Thanks to the generosity of donor Diana Pace, his wish came true on April 22, 2013.  The power chair will enable Caton to maintain his independence, allowing him to grocery shop and participate in other activities.  Pictured, Barstow chapter director Jeff Eason with Richard Caton.
