Earlier this summer, Jamie Vautour worried that he wouldn't be able to get to the Nickelback concert at Magnetic Hill, New Brunswick, because of a public transit lockdown in Moncton.

No wheelchair-accessible buses were running in his hometown of Dieppe.

A generous anonymous donor stepped up to provide Vautour with $200 so he could afford the wheelchair-accessible transportation he needed to see his favourite band play live, plus some additional money to buy souvenirs.

That same donor has done it again, CTV Atlantic reports, this time buying Vautour two Bruce Springsteen tickets along with covering transportation costs and souvenir purchases.

"It's amazing how I have people supporting me this year and want me to enjoy myself. If I have anything to say to the person that helped me, 'thank you,' because it means a lot," Vautour told CTV Atlantic.

"Thank you very much," added his mother, Pauline. "I really appreciate what you did for me and my son. I can't thank you enough."
