He Made A Life-Changing Decision After Seeing A Heartbreaking Post On Facebook.

Sometimes, when you start a new journey in your life, you have absolutely no idea where it will take you -- and often, that's part of the adventure. 28-year-old Californian Eugene Yoon knew he wanted to do something special, particularly for someone in need -- he just wasn't sure what it would be.

That's when he heard about a young man who became a paraplegic after being beaten and mugged. For whatever reason, Yoon couldn't get the man's story out of his head. He decided to do something crazy: He quit his job and embarked on an adventure that would ultimately help the injured man walk again. You're not going to believe what it took, but there's no doubt that this story will bring tears to your eyes.
