Radio Station K-Love gave out their fan awards last year, and this particular one touched our heart. It’s the story of the love of brother and sister, Lindsay and Trenton. Lindsay was born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). SMA is an extremely rare disorder, affecting 8 out of every 100,000 births. It means that Lindsay is confined to a wheelchair.
Although she is unable to walk, she has been blessed with an amazing ally, her brother Trenton.
“Sometimes people will just stare at her, it’s like… ‘normal person here!'” says Trenton of his sister.
The family won an “Unsung Hero Award,” at the K-LOVE Fan Awards.
Trenton explains how much his sister means to him on the video, stating that he would “take a bullet for her,” as he begins to choke up, pulling her into a hug as she sits in her motorized wheelchair.
“She’s my best friend … my life would be nothing without her,” Trenton says through tears.
Lindsay adds, “It’s just easier to go through life with a big brother like Trenton.”
Check out this incredible bond between brother and sister, and maybe tell your brother or sister that you love them. 🙂
