A Paralyzed Man Took the $30,000 He'd Saved Up for Stem Cell Treatment, and Gave It to a Five-Year-Old Who Needs Surgery to Help Him Walk


A 25-year-old man in Wales named Dan Black was paralyzed in a bike accident four years ago.  And 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.
 
In the past four years, Dan has raised $30,000 for his stem cell surgery.  And he's decided to donate ALL OF IT to Brecon.
 
Brecon's parents had already raised about $16,000 . . . meaning Dan's donation put them over the halfway point. 
 
Their story made national news in Britain last week, which prompted MORE people to donate.  And less than a week later, Brecon's parents say they've REACHED their $90,000 goal.  (Mirror.co.uk)
