This Story Will Melt Your Heart

A five year old in Ohio got a pretty cool custom Halloween costume to compliment his wheelchair. Blake Mompher was born with spina bifida – a disease affects the spinal nerves – and has been wheelchair bound since he was one. Thankfully, Blake’s condition doesn’t dampen his spirits.

This year, Mompher’s granddad tricked out his Halloween costume from scratch. He made a bright yellow school bus that fits around the wheelchair. Now the little guy can have fun riding around in a “Blake County School” bus. His mom posted a Facebook video of Blake – all smiles doing spins and wheelies – that went viral.

The little boy said he can’t wait to trick or treat this year!
