CHARLESTON, SC (FOX24 NEWS NOW) —

David Powell overcame many complications as a newborn even though it seemed as though all the odds were stacked against him. His mother, SarahAnn, described his initial battle with cerebral palsy that had, unfortunately, triggered other health complications for this young man. These setbacks didn’t stop David from learning how to do everyday things like walking. His inspirational story is proof that you truly can do anything you set your mind to.

David was awarded the 2019 Children’s Miracle Network Award when he selflessly volunteered to work with MUSC in pursuit of bringing joy to other kids. His most recent project is a toy drive for the children at the hospital.
