Andrew West suffered a stroke before he was born. His parents were told he may never walk, talk or feed himself. Andrew shares heartwarming stories of how he not only learned to walk, talk and feed himself, but played soccer, ran a 5K marathon and was part of his school band.
He credits his family, friends and his community for helping him succeed at his goals. The sixteen-year old also talks about how he has given back to his community and helped others.
