This Guy Just Built His Daughter The Coolest Swing In Alabama

Last October, Ryan Nelson earned the inaugural Fatherly Fund grant with his plans to build a wheelchair-accessible swing for his 7-year-old daughter, who suffers from type 1 spinal muscular atrophy. Nelson, who has a background in mechanical engineering, had already drafted the plans and just needed 2 things: some money for materials, and time. Thanks to a crowdsourced vote on Fatherly’s Facebook page, the money was taken care of. Thanks to the weather warming up, Nelson finally got the time. And now Mary has, hands down, the coolest swing in Alabama.

Read all about Ryan’s project here, but feel free to skip ahead to the story’s high five-inducing conclusion in the video below.

  1. Do you plan on sending your kids back to school this fall?
    Yes. I trust that our schools are taking precautions.
    No. We don't feel that proper precautions are in place.
    I'm not sure yet. It depends on how things progress.
Thanks for the feedback!
