Lotto winners step up and get torch-carrying teen new prosthetic leg8/1/2012
Kieran Maxwell is a 13-year-old who sadly lost his left leg to cancer earlier this year. Despite the hardship, the U.K. teen vowed to remain active and even had the honor of carrying the Olympic torch as it traveled across Britain. During his part of the trip, Kieran fell when his heavy artificial leg gave out, spurring the grandmother of a school friend to bring his struggle to the attention of Colin and Chris Weir, a couple who had won £161 million ($252 million) in a Euromillions drawing. The Weirs then stepped in and donated a five-figure sum to procure Kieran a new, lightweight prosthetic leg. "Not only will he be able to walk again like all his friends," Kieran's mother, Nicola, said, "he will be able to run and climb too." [Source]
