Dave on Wheels responds to the Chivers! (11 Photos)

When Sarah Hill discovered Dave on Wheel's Twitter Page, he had 8 followers. Sarah couldn't believe how insightful and funny the profoundly deaf paraplegic with cerebral palsy was. She friended him, followed by Erin Willett, and Dave's following quickly grew to 800 until I posted this story about Dave yesterday. In less than 24 hours, Dave has eclipsed 7,500 Twitter followers.

It's fascinating how technology has unlocked the genius bottled up in Dave. Dave uses a special computer called Tobii to type, it can read his visual instructions. And then there's Twitter, the vehicle that carries Dave's hilarious insights out to the world. A couple short years ago none of what is happening now would even be possible.

Many of you probably noticed Dave's Twitter Machine was silent for most of the day yesterday until Dave's sister hopped on his Twitter to update the Chivers. Dave had a crucial procedure during the day. On a day when Dave needed positive vibes the most, the Chivers delivered it in spades.

Later in the evening, Dave's Twitter machine sprung to life. He was so appreciative for the support as you'll see below. Dave has some very difficult days ahead of him right now, Chivers. He needs all the support he can get. Yet even after a grueling day, Dave didn't complain one bit. Right until the moment when the nurse turned off the lights, Dave was making jokes.

    Copy of his sister's post from October 11, 2012….

    "At 5:33 pm today he passed away at the age of 24, and a few days ago had asked me to post the above if that should that occur. He wrote it on Monday when he was first told he had pneumonia, and although not one to give up easily, he wrote this post to express to everyone who is dear to him how he felt about them…."

  • Dave On Wings Now

    Dave, You inspired many of us in just the week most of us were introduced to you. Thank you for touching our lives more than we may have touched yours! You have inspired more people around the world than you may have even realized and maybe your job and purpose in this life and since your job may have been completed here you were called up to the big leagues when man upstairs needed a comedian to keep him laughing so he took away your wheels and gave you wings. Keep the jokes coming! #daveonwings
