Brad decided to raise $10,000 (3,635,000) through a GoFundMe campaign to help send Quaden and his mother from Australia to Disneyland in California, but the campaign has raised $221,000 as at the time of filing this report.

Apart from Brad who decided to put a smile on Quaden's face, other people have reached out to the boy to shower him with love and to tell him how amazing he is.

According to Brad, any money left over after the trip is paid for will be donated to anti-bullying charities.

Reflecting on her achievements, Flowers said she wishes her grandfather were alive to witness her accomplishments and see her graduate.

Although she was too young at the time to remember, Allison’s grandfather, who passed away when she was in 11th grade taught her never to give up on her dreams regardless of the setbacks she would encounter.
