Magic in The News

Megyn Kelly TODAY

Megyn Kelly spotlights Ryan and Lana Weimer, founders of the nonprofit Magic Wheelchair, who have several children with wheelchairs and who construct spectacular, ingenious costumes for kids with disabilities, including a pirate ship and a T. rex.

Great Big Story

One Halloween, Ryan Weimer's then-3-year-old son wanted to dress up as a pirate. But his son, who has spinal muscular atrophy, is restricted to a wheelchair. So Ryan fashioned a homemade costume that incorporated the wheelchair as a pirate ship, and his son absolutely loved it.

Upworthy

Ryan Weimer wanted his son to experience the fun other kids had on Halloween, so with imagination and love, he transformed his son's wheelchair into something incredible. Video by Jess Blank. Special thanks to the Weimer family and www.magicwheelchair.org
