Wheelchair bound man travels the world with the help of friends!

Kevan Chandler suffers from muscular atrophy and has been wheelchair bound his entire life, but that hasn't stopped him travelling the world! 

We carry Kevan

Kevan Chandler was born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a neuromuscular disease which limits his mobility but in 2015, that all changed. 

His friends were going backpacking in Europe, and they had the idea that Chandler could be the backpack.They modified a baby carrier and carried him, leaving his wheelchair behind at the airport in Atlanta. 

From this amazing friendship, "We Carry Kevan" was born, a movement that aims to assist people all over the world by enhancing the mobility of individuals with disabilities and realizing that everyone has unique potential.

With the help of his friends, Kevan was able to climb the cliffs of Ireland, walk the cobblestone streets of Paris and hike the countryside of England. "It was the one time in my life where I didn't feel disabled anymore."  he said.

"We Carry Kevan" has since worked with a German backpack outfitter to design a backpack carrier specifically for adults with disabilities. Through donations on their website, wecarrykevan.com, they hope to gift the backpack carriers to people with disablities and their families at no cost.

Kevan and his freinds share their trips via the We Carry Kevan Facebook page.

What's keeping you from realising your dreams? If Kevan can make his dreams come true, so can you! 

I once heard a saying that has stuck with me: "Feel the fear, and do it anyway!"
