Desiree Andrews is a student at Lincoln Middle School in Wisconsin who has Down Syndrome. While cheering for her basketball team on the sidelines, she became the target of harmful comments from the stands.

Three boys who were playing in the game overheard the comments directed at Desiree. They stopped the game, walked off the court, and took action.

"The kids in the audience were picking on Dee, so we all stepped forward," said player Chase Vazquez (pictured below on the left).

"It's not fair when other people get treated wrong because we're all the same. We're all created the same. God made us the same way," added player Scooter Terrien.

Now, Desiree never walks to class alone.
