Dan Black, 25, from the UK has been paralyzed since he was hit by a car almost four years ago. But there's hope- new stem cell treatments that– when they become available in about 5 years or so– could help him walk again. So, Black's town helped him raise the money, around $30,000, for the treatment.
That is when Black met Brecon Vaughan.
Vaughan is five-years-old. He also can not walk as a result of Cerebral Palsy. There is also hope for Vaughan, in the form of expensive surgery. A lot of money that his family does not have.
The difference? Vaughan's treatment is available right now. So what did Black do?
He donated his money to Vaughan, and since he did, hundreds of others did too, bringing Brecon closer to walking for the first time in his life. For his efforts, Dan Black has been nominated for a "Pride of Britain" award.
