Not many kids get their own army tank to trick-or-treat in, but for six-year-old Jake, his stepdad makes it happen.
Jake Gregory suffered a ‘brain bleed’ just days after his birth in Denver, Colo., six years ago. He now lives with cerebral palsy and epilepsy. Jake spends his days in a wheelchair, unable to talk or eat.
His stepdad, Andy, decided that shouldn’t stop his son from having cool Halloween costumes.
For the last three years he has made it his mission to give his son a huge smile along with an epic costume.
Last year, Jake trick-or-treated in his own fire truck, which his stepdad custom-built, complete with working light, to fit around his wheelchair. The year before that – his stepson was a pirate aboard a pirate ship.
For Halloween 2014, Jake has a fierce army tank, complete with a cannon that smokes.
