Addie Bryan of Rockwall, Texas is a very special kid indeed!
Back in 2015, when she was a tad shy of eight years of age, she decided to donate eight thousand dollars to the hospital that had been treating her ever since she was a week old.
She ended up donating seventy thousand dollars!
At birth, Addie was club-footed, had abnormal buttocks, rearward knees, and lower limbs rising upwards!
Her mother, Julie shares that Addie’s
legs were first put into medical moulds when she was a mere seven days old. As her age advanced,
so did the moulds and by the time she was eight, she had got close to seventy
Despite all the trouble and
uncertainty in the initial days, Addie now stands on her feet — a joy her
mother doubted she would ever behold, back in the early days when her treatment
had just begun.
Eventually, when the little Miss Bryan got going on her feet, it was nothing short of a miracle.
Knowing how the hospital had helped her, the little girl wished to show her gratitude besides helping other children who, like her, faced congenital abnormalities.
She decided she wanted
to donate eight thousand dollars, to commemorate her eighth birthday. A noble
thought indeed, but very difficult to achieve.
The kid with the never-say-die attitude, decided to stand on the roadside -every morning and evening- holding a chart saying she wanted to collect eight thousand dollars for donating to her hospital on her birthday.
Many mass communication agencies aired
her story and people across the globe began sending money. Within days, she
collected upwards of nineteen thousand dollars!
And then… it happened! One fine day the hospital received fifty thousand dollars from an unknown person on Addie’s behalf.
With that, the little girl gifted a
total sum of sixty-nine thousand, five hundred dollars to her hospital!
