Inspired By His Older Brother, 8-Year-Old With Cerebral Palsy Inspires Everyone Else!Paul Reyburn
From NBC News-
8-year-old Braden Gandee has Cerebral Palsy, but the inspiration he gets from his older brother, Hunter makes him feel unstoppable. CP makes it hard for Braden to use his muscles, but his loving brother is always there to help him when he needs it.
Rest assured, Braden doesn’t always need help. He recently decided to start wrestling, an act to be more like his brother who wrestles on the high school varsity team as a freshman.
Since NBC first introduced the boys in June of 2014, various people have reached out to help Braden with his mobility. One team of engineers offered to build a new handicap-accessible playground, while another team in Cincinnati built Braden a new walker that can maneuver more easily on the existing playground’s mulch and grass.
And while Braden is inspiring everyone with his strength and persistence, he attributes his own inspiration to his big brother.
“He inspires me, because he shows me that if you try hard enough, you actually can do something.”
A big thanks to NBC for giving us all a look into the love, courage, and inspiration of Braden and Hunter!!
