A Teen Walked 40 Miles With His Brother on His Back for Cerebral Palsy Awareness

July 14, 2014

"He ain’t heavy, mister… he’s my brother.”

 

Braden and Hunter Gandee already had a special brotherly bond. But it was made all the stronger last week.

 

Seven-year-old Braden was born with cerebral palsy, a condition that makes the muscles in his legs difficult to control. He wears braces and can only walk with the aid of a walker. For years, his 14-year-old brother Hunter has been like a “second pair of legs” to Braden, their mom, Danielle Gandee, said. Hunter picks Braden up and carries him piggyback-style whenever the little guy needs a lift.

 

Last Saturday, the two brothers set off on a 40-mile journey from their hometown near the Michigan-Ohio border to the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor -- with Braden once again on Hunter’s back -- to raise awareness about cerebral palsy.
