8-Year-old Helps Buy New Wheelchair For His Best Buddy When Insurance Fails… But their parents were…

If there was ever any question as to whether or not Kamden Houshan and Paul Burnett would be friends for the rest of their lives, that question is now definitively answered.

The children who are going to be in the third grade next year do everything together, from eating happy meals from McDonald’s to playing in the park.

Since they first met in kindergarten a number of years ago, the two have been extremely close to one another.

So when Paul saw that Kamden was having trouble controlling his wheelchair, he didn’t think twice about offering his assistance.

Kamden was born with a huge tumor that was embedded in his spine, which resulted in him being a paraplegic.

The tumor was successfully removed during surgery; nevertheless, the youngster, who was 8 years old, was left paralyzed as a result of the procedure.

The previous model of Kamden’s wheelchair was so cumbersome and heavy that it restricted the young man’s ability to easily navigate doorways within the house.

Because the bathtub did not fit into the bathroom, Kamden’s mother was forced to always carry him into and out of the room, which caused her body to endure an enormous amount of strain.

Then, in the month of August, Kamden had the opportunity to test drive a lighter wheelchair model, and he was amazed by how much of an improvement it made in his life.

Regrettably, the insurance would not be able to pay the expense of purchasing another wheelchair for several more years.

While this was going on, Paul had discovered GoFundMe by looking up information on it on YouTube. When he learned about his friend’s predicament, he approached his parents with the request to begin a campaign on his friend’s behalf.

Just a few short weeks later, Kamden’s page had already raised $5,500, which was almost $2,000 over than their initial target.

“I want to thank each and every one of you for taking part in this amazing adventure to get Kamden his wheelchair…

“Paul and Kamden have been beaming with happiness ever since they found out that Kamden is receiving the care that he requires,” wrote Paul’s mother.
