This Creative Dad Makes Unreal Costumes For His Wheelchair-Bound Son
Ever since Ryan Weimer's son Keaton began using a wheelchair in 2008, he's made sure that he has the coolest costume every Halloween. Keaton, along with two more of Weimer's five children, were diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a branch of MD, which requires them to use wheelchairs. Making costumes for his kids was always important to Ryan, and he didn't want their new wheelchairs to stop him from doing something they both loved.
So, Weimer, with the help of many others, founded the nonprofit "Magic Wheelchair." Every year, children are invited to send in pitches describing why they should receive a Magic Wheelchair that Halloween. A lot can be said about the incredible work that Ryan Weimer is doing, but nothing speaks louder than the looks on children's faces that he helps.
