Katie Myers, and her son, Kaden.

Katie Myers and her husband were blessed with a sweet son, Kaden. But the joy of being parents soon turned into horror as Kaden began to face issues in his health.

The ghastly diagnosis

The ghastly diagnosis

Even after one and a half years, Kaden was developing rather slowly than the rate at which he should. The doctors finally revealed that Kaden was suffering from spinal muscular atrophy, type 2. They said that he will never be able to walk without help. He will only be able to sit up with extreme effort. He will not grow old.

The everyday fight

The everyday fight

Kaden and his mother fight every day; fight to take a step ahead in life. He learns to sit up, to raise his arms. Eventually, he can use a wheelchair. Katie is unbelievably proud of her little fighter. They often go the museum to provide Kaden with large, flat ground to move around! But one day, during one such visit, something wonderful happened!

A wonderful meeting!

A wonderful meeting!

Kaden was playing with a device, as much as he could, where colorful balls can be moved on rails. Katie was watching from the distance, letting her little champion discover the device for himself. That's when the wonderful thing happened that compelled Katie to take a picture and upload it on Facebook with the following description: "To the little boy at the science museum, I don't know who you are, but thank you for being amazing. You let my son play and engage with you. You helped him pick up balls from the floor when you saw that he could not. You didn't ask what was wrong with him or why he couldn't walk, you just saw him. Kaden is a lot like you, he is very curious and wildly smart. He wants to know how everything works. Thank you for helping him turn the lever when you noticed he was too weak to do it himself. You will probably never see this but just by being you, you make this world better."

How much it meant...

How much it meant...

The unknown boy's indifference to Kaden's condition, of being in a wheelchair, and treating him like any other child of their age group, deeply touched Katie. "I would love to tell his parents how unbelievable and caring their son is that he treats everyone the same," says Katie.

It's fine to ask questions, but being treated as normal does help.

The mother explained in an interview later, that there is nothing wrong with asking questions about Kaden. But this carefree time with a playmate, where no probing questions were made, was simply incomparable. Being seen as a normal child and being treated as such, means a lot for the little boy who fights for his survival every day. It is always great to have such souls around!
