Kanye is known to be outspoken and often ruffles feathers for speaking his mind. But no one can argue that what he did for a fan is nothing but admirable.
mBack in May, Wesley, shared his story as he continues to make strides with his therapists to walk again.
5 years ago I was involved in a roll over car accident that left me paralyzed from the shoulders down. This is my progress today.. ♿️ pic.twitter.com/gMY131Lrik

My five year anniversary of my spinal cord injury is today. Years ago I thought my life was over knowing that I was going to be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life. But now, I am not ashamed of being in a wheelchair. I love the spinal cord injury/disability community. I’ve heard all kinds of injuries and life stories from inspirational human beings from across the world. Many of them have taught me to never give up and that it can always be worse so just keep pushing on no matter how bad things may get in life. Going from an athlete to being in a wheelchair since I was 15 years old hasn’t shaken my confidence and who I am as a person. I’m still that same person I was mentally, just a lot more knowledgeable, grateful, and have a way more appreciation for life. I don’t want people to think that I’m not happy being in my wheelchair and that’s the reason I fight so hard to walk again.. it’s actually the opposite, I’m happy but I want more in life as anyone else would. I’m incredibly grateful for all the support from my family and friends and also the random kind of acts and motivation I receive on a daily basis to walk again. The most important reason I do what I can do to share my story with thousands of people is to spread awareness of a life changing injury. “The spinal cord injury.” As many as 500,000 people across the world suffer a spinal cord injury each year. One day a cure to heal paralysis will come. Until then, I will continue to fight to show the millions living with this injury that we choose to keep going and live life to the fullest.
The story went viral and must have caught Kanye’s eye because he sent Tyler a pair of cream white Yeezy Boost 350 V2’s with a handwritten note saying “You are an inspiration you show the world anything is possible thank you for sharing your journey.”
Were definitely inspired by Tyler, his hard work and positive outlook just as much as Kanye. And we’re impressed that Kanye took the time to reach out to a fan doing big things. Maybe Kanye’s just a big softie after all.
