There’s a 3-year-old boy in Detroit, Maine, who sits every day in a wheelchair. He was born with a cancerous tumor on his spine and has been paralyzed from the waist down since he was 6 months old.
When officials with the Make-A-Wish Foundation approached him one day and asked him what they could do for him, they expected him to say a trip to Disney World, or an expensive toy to play with. But little Kellen Tilton surprised them quite a bit. All he wanted was a path that he could travel on his wheelchair from his house to the barn in the backyard so he could help his dad. Kellen would often get stuck in the grass while moving his wheelchair toward the barn. So a nice path would make that short trip much easier for him.
With that, more than half a dozen businesses traveled from southern Maine to fulfill the young boy’s wish. And every one of those workers was more than happy to be a part of this wish. Kellen even helped a little by driving in some of the nails… with the little help himself, of course.
Says his dad, Dan: “You see that smile on his face, and you can hear him in the background and hear that excitement…it warms your heart.”
And for a dad, that’s all He could wish for.
