A Very Special Boy Sees Past Disability

Katie Meyers’ son, Kaden, has spinal muscular atrophy, and that disability is a big part of her life as much as she hates to admit it. Kaden, who is only a year old, is confined to a wheelchair and has limited mobility. Katie is used to helping Kaden through his disability because she feels that it is her only choice.

Until they went to the museum.

While Kaden was at the museum, an older boy started playing with the boy in the wheelchair. He didn’t ask questions and he didn’t think twice. They would play together and everything that Kaden couldn’t do, the stranger would handle. If the ball got too far away from the boys while they were playing, the stranger didn’t hesitate to go and find it.

Watching all of this unfold, Katie was overwhelmed by the kindness this boy showed to her son. After being asked constantly about Kaden’s condition, it was nice for Katie to see someone who didn’t have questions. He was just a boy, looking for a friend to play with, whether he was in a wheelchair or not.

Ryan Hickman is a kid with a unique perspective about how he likes to spend his free time. "We all have our passions," he explains. "My only sport is recycling…which is probably not a sport to other kids, but it is to me…so it's a sport!"

In 2012 at the age of 3, Ryan went along with his dad, Damion, to the local recycling center and cashed in a few small bags of cans and bottles and quickly decided that recycling was in his future. The very next day, Ryan notified his parents that he wanted to give empty plastic bags to all their neighbors and maybe they would save their recyclables for him. Not only did the local neighbors rally to support Ryan' efforts, but so did their friends, families and co-workers. Today, Ryan has customers all over Orange County, CA.
