27-year-old Deontay Wilder is a currently undefeated heavyweight boxer, and is the only American to win a medal for boxing in the Summer Olympics. But before he ever discovered boxing, his baby girl Naeiya was born with severe spina bifida, and was never expected to walk. He abandoned dreams of becoming a professional athlete, working several jobs in order to pay for the surgeries and medical care she needed. With his success as a boxer, he can now afford to give her the best care possible, and she is walking on her own.
I love hearing stories of sacrificial love and that result in such powerful triumph. I hope this beautiful film serves as an inspiring start to your week! xo
