High school student buys electric wheelchair for disabled friend


Navigating the high school halls is now a bit easier for Brandon Qualls all thanks to his brand-new electric wheelchair.

Before his new wheelchair, Brandon had used a manual wheelchair to get to class.

Brandon’s friend, Tanner Wilson, decided he needed to help so he saved for over two years working a part-time job to buy Brandon an electric wheelchair.

Tanner surprised Brandon last month with the chair during class – completely shocking Brandon.

Tanner searched for the right chair for a year, discovering this one for sale on Facebook.
