People love focusing on Kanye’s arrogance but you can’t deny that the rapper truly loves his fans. One fan in particular, a young man named Tyler Wesley, was injured in a rollover car accident about five years ago. Tyler suffered a life-changing spinal cord injury which left him paralyzed from the shoulders down. Not surprisingly, doctors assumed that he would never be able to walk again – but he’s currently beating the odds.
Tyler refuses to quit and has put in tons of work in hopes of becoming mobile again. Most recently he was able to take a few steps with the help of a walker and physical therapists. He has documented his recovery by posting on social media and Mr. West took notice. Kanye was so moved by the story that he sent Tyler a custom pair of white Yeezy Boost 350s along with a handwritten note.
“Tyler – You are an inspiration. You show the world anything is possible. Thank you for sharing your journey. -Kanye West.”
Keep pushing, Tyler!
