This is a heart warming story of a father who refused to listen to nay-saying doctors, took matters into his own hands, and helped his son defy the odds.

The boy in this story has brain damage that caused him not to be able to walk. The doctors wrote the boy off and told the father there was nothing they could do. Sound familiar?

So the father (who worked in a car repair shop) made a prtotype of a walker that stretched his son’s body and helped to rebuild his muscles. As the father puts it, “I said to myself, I have to do something, and well, I got the idea to put a brain in his feet, and so I did that and we got results.” Now, the father has invested his life savings in making more machines to help other children. He is looking for investors but so far, has not had any takers. Hopefully, this story will result in getting his dream funded.

The happy ending? The boy is now able to walk independently. We applaud this father’s courage and strength.

The take away? Don’t listen to negative people. Believe in your child and who knows what will happen. Never, ever give up.
