A man who had been living on the side of the road in Georgia for three years was granted his dream.
His name is Scott.
Scott was diagnosed with the disease two years ago.
He had no idea how to walk, speak, eat or even have sex.
But then, with the help of a volunteer, he got to where he is now.
Scott says the help has been magical.
He’s had so many people come and tell him how much it means to them.
And he knows he’s done the right thing.
“The only reason I was alive is because of the kindness and love and kindness and generosity of people.
And so, it’s just so amazing,” he said.”
I’m grateful for what I have now, I can’t believe that.
I just don’t understand why I was born.
I think the universe had a plan and it was to make me live in a coffin.”
Scott says he loves being a part of his community, but he also wants to do something for other people with the same disease.
Scott is in his early 20s, but is the father of a daughter and two granddaughters.
Scott is a member of the Boy Scouts and the American Red Cross, but says he’s also a student.
He loves to travel and travel the country.
He’s planning on graduating with a degree in psychology.
He says he hopes to work as a counselor.
“It’s kind of an honor to be able to be in a position to give someone else hope and give someone something,” he told us.
“And to help somebody who’s in need and to know that they are not alone.
That they’re not the only one, they’re just a little bit of the team.
And that they can all do this together.”
Scott’s story inspired our new documentary, A Man’s Dream Comes True, which airs Thursday, June 29 on ABC News Network.
