GOOD NEWS Disabled Girl and Her Awesome Big Bro Share Incredible Bond
Check out an inspiring story brought to us this morning by Steve Doocy, who sat down with a special family from Kansas.
Ten-year-old Lindsay Cochran suffers from spinal muscular atrophy and is in a wheelchair, but she has formed an incredible bond with her big brother, Trenton.
A heartwarming video (below) was made about the family by their church as part of a series about overcoming obstacles.
"He's very nice and caring. He takes care of me a lot. When I'm sick and I ask him to bring me my stuffed animals, he'll bring them to me. He's just a really good brother," Lindsay said, adding "it's just easier going through life with Trenton."
Trenton explained that what inspires him is that Lindsay doesn't see her disability as a bad thing, and is just a "normal person." He said it's important for him to make sure his sister isn't picked on and is just treated like a normal kid.
Their mom, Tracy Cochran, explained that the family has been through a lot, including her breast cancer.
"These kids have seen more than most kids their age. I think when you face hardships like that, it brings you together and they see the value of life and how fragile it is, and value each other's company," said Tracy.
