Justin Timberlake buys wheelchair-accessible van for teenager with cerebral palsy

American musician, Justin Timberlake, has planted a longlasting smile on the face of a teenager with cerebral palsy during this year’s thanksgiving.

He made the wish of Jake Stitt come true by purchasing a wheelchair-accessible van for the 17-year-old who is from his state, Tennessee.

Stitt had been trying to raise the sum of $35,000 (N13.3m) he needed to buy the van. After hearing his story, Timberlake decided to give the teen a present he would remember forever.

He also told the family to keep the money they had already raised for the vehicle, reports.

“It’s my pleasure. As I said, I heard there was a goal to try to get this van before Thanksgiving. I heard your story and saw a little news clip about it.

“I was so moved that I want you guys to have this van. I’m going to cover all the costs. I want you guys to have a great holiday. You inspire me, Jake,” Justin told Jake and his dad during a Zoom call.
