Kanye West sends teen paralysed from the shoulders down customised Yeezys after being “inspired” by his story

INSPIRED: Tyler Wesley and Kanye West

KANYE WEST sent a teen paralysed from the shoulders down a pair of customised Yeezys after being moved by his story.

Tyler Wesley was involved in a car accident some years back, which left him with life-changing injuries and was told by doctors that he would never walk again.

The Colorado native said of his accident: “I was involved in a roll over car accident the end of my sophomore year in high school that resulted in breaking my C-4 vertebrae in my neck and being paralysed from the shoulders down.

“My life would forever change in just a moment of seconds and my dreams would turn more into a nightmare than a virtual reality of becoming that professional soccer player I’ve always dreamed of as a kid.”

DETERMINATION: Tyler shared a video of himself walking unaided

He shared a video of himself walking unaided on social media, which was viewed and shared thousands of times.

Kanye West was one of those viewers and subsequently sent the teen a customised pair of his in-demand trainers with a personalised note that read:

“Tyler, you are an inspiration and show the world that anything is possible. Thank you for sharing your journey. Kanye West.”
