Community Saves Christmas Display for San Jose Family

A San Jose woman's extravagant Christmas display for her terminally ill son has been revived thanks to members of the community who raised $4,000 to save it.

Last month, thieves swiped the decorations right out of the front yard of the family's home in the city's Willow Glen neighborhood.

The board of Christmas in the Park donated and installed a new display on the family’s front lawn and installed lights.

The Jimenez family spread the cheer by making light arches for their entire neighborhood on Vernon Avenue.

Jimenez's son Chris can't really leave the house, so the holidays have to come to him. He is terminally ill and is going blind.

Jimenez said she was going all out this year because it could be his last Christmas.
