Andy Was Told He Would Never Walk Again… You’ll Be So Blessed by This Miracle of Willpower!

In Nazareth, Pennsylvania, a 26-year-old man sits confined to a wheel chair, as students and parents around him erupt into applause, on their feet and roaring for another basket, another touchdown, another home run – all in another day in the life of Andy Weaver. Born with cerebral palsy, Andy could barely support his own weight, and degenerative muscles are hard to coordinate. Doctors said that once he was put in a wheelchair over fifteen years ago, he would never walk. But fitting enough for the town that bears the name of Jesus’ home, the lame are made to walk. So in a gym full of the sports teams and students he had been cheering for his whole life as Nazareth High School’s biggest fan, students and parents around Andy weaver erupted into applause, on their feet and roaring for another step. After six months of intense and intentional physical therapy, you can view the joyous story in the video below.
