Simple Acts of Kindness: Paralyzed Man Donates Surgical Funds to Child with Cerebral Palsy

Daniel Black was paralysed after breaking his neck in a cycling accident in 2009. Determined to walk again, the 26-year-old set about raising the money needed for an operation that would get him back on his feet. But after reading the story of six-year-old cerebral palsy sufferer Brecon Vaughan, who also needed pioneering surgery to help him walk again, Daniel gave him every penny of the £22,000 he had collected. Brecon to flew out to the United States for his operation in October 2013. Daniel, who was given a Daily Mirror Pride of Britain award for his huge generosity, said: “For me, things are not getting better soon. I wanted to help someone whose life could get better.”
