With a look at any of Tyler Wesley's social media feeds, part of his story is known immediately. Five years ago, he was involved in a a roll over car accident that left him paralyzed from the shoulders down. While it'd be understandable for that kind of event to leave anybody feeling down and out, Wesley uses his accident as daily motivation for himself and others. He doesn't only believe that he'll walk again—he IS walking again.

Taking notice of Wesley's story was Kanye West, who was also involved in a serious accident in 2002. To help keep his spirits high and share his own message of motivation, West gifted him a pair of custom "Cream" Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2s with a handwritten letter.
“You are an inspiration," said West. "You show the world anything is possible. Thank you for sharing your journey.”
