A father who had been paralyzed worked hard to get back on his feet and was able to surprise his daughter by walking her down the aisle and dancing at her wedding. JimStamp was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a rare neurological disorder, that left him unable to walk and in the hospital for five months.
But the father of three was determined and made progress with physical therapy and eventually he moved out of his wheelchair and began using a cane instead. Stamp was focused on getting strong enough to walk his daughter, Gina Ross, down the aisle at her wedding. He reached his goal and with the assistance of a cane, he walked her. That was impressive, but everyone was really blown away when he ditched the cane during their father-daughter dance.
"He stood up independently and we danced together arm-in-arm as I continuously laughed and cried in his arms yelling, 'Really? Dad! No cane!'" Gina explains. "He told me, 'I didn’t want to tell you in case I couldn’t make it happen, but I wanted to surprise you with this dance.'"
