Paralyzed man gave his savings for stem cell treatment to a 5-year-old who can't walk

July 25, 2013

A 25-year-old man in Wales named Dan Black was paralyzed in a bike accident four years ago. Since then, he’s been raising money for a stem cell treatment that might allow him to walk again.

The problem is, the treatment doesn’t exist yet, so he’s been hanging onto the money and waiting for science to catch up…that is, until he recently heard about a five-year-old boy with cerebral palsy named Brecon Vaughan.

Just like Dan, Brecon can’t walk. The difference is, a treatment DOES exist that might help Brecon, but it costs about $90,000.

And so, Dan Black decided to donate ALL OF IT to Brecon. Every. Single. Bit.

Brecon’s parents had already raised about $16,000, meaning Dan’s donation put them over the halfway point.

Dan, from Chepstow – the same Welsh town as Brecon – said: "For me, things are not getting better soon. I wanted to help someone whose life could get better. If I can help someone to walk, I will. Brecon can walk if he has the surgery."

Their story made national news in Britain last week, which prompted even MORE people to donate. Less than a week later, Brecon’s parents say they’ve REACHED their $90,000 goal.

This is what people can do when they band together: help a little boy walk again.
