Transcript for Family makes life better for their young son and more children
Finally, "America strong." An update on a story we brought you earlier this summer. One family ice -- family's mission to make their child's life better is now helping others. Two weeks ago we brought you the story of the Moreland family. Nearly anywhere you go inside the Moreland family home, you're bound to find little Brody coming in hot. Brody wasn't always a man on the move. For a while there, he spent so much of the day like this, on his belly, unable to go anywhere. He was born with spina bifida and spinal cord atrophy, essentially paralyzed below the chest. When Brody was about eight months old, I overheard some other parents talking about how their kids just destroyed their house and got toys everywhere. It almost brought me to tears because for me Brody wasn't ever going to be able to do that. Reporter: Brody's parents decided they weren't going to let life pass him by. So his dad Taylor got to work. Completely self-taught, he started to design, build, and test a device he called "The frog." They felt Brody looked like a little frog when they put him in it. It was life-changing for both him and us. Reporter: Since our story aired, the morelands have been able to rase nearly $100,000 more, funding more frogs for children completely free of charge. After your story aired on "World news tonight," we more than doubled our goal on our gofundme. And then just the amount of people who contacted us has been incredible from all over the world. The orders that have come in, the people that want to help us. Reporter: They've also been receiving videos of kids using the frog. Here's mighty max. And 9-month-old avryee. We're just excited to get more little people moving, so the more people who know about the frog, the better, I think. And we agree. If you want to help, that gofundme site is help Brody get kids moving. Thanks so much for watching. I'm Tom llamas in New York. Have a great evening.
