Kellan Tilton is a 6 year-old paraplegic cancer survivor. But the Maine native doesn’t let that stop him from being an exceptional child: He skis, rock climbs, and has aspirations of becoming a hunter. In this first episode of My Kid The, we take Kellan and his dad Dan Tilton rock climbing, which is nothing out of the ordinary for them, and together we explore their journey as father and son. Produced by Beatriz Browne.

My Kid The … is a new weekly series from Fatherly exploring the lives of extraordinary kids and their parents — because behind every great kid, is a great parent. New episodes every Wednesday on YouTube.
