GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A Gainesville couple has found a buyer
after offering almost all their possessions for auction on eBay to
pay their children's medical bills.
The auction for Gregg and Brittiny Peters' belongings ended
Thursday morning. A woman in Texas placed the final bid of $20,000
for the couple's goods.
They will keep their house and some bedding but sold other
items, including their 2002 Chevy Tahoe and their 52-inch
The Peters have three children. Their 7-year-old daughter has an
autoimmune disorder that sent her to the hospital last year. A
younger son requires speech, physical and behavioral therapy.
The couple says they will use $15,000 to pay their bills. The
rest will go into an emergency fund.
