Faith in Humanity: Girl with Dwarfism gives out iPads to special needs kids

Jan 27, 2015, 3:24 AM | Updated: 3:25 am

Cassidy Huff has had 33 surgeries and numerous health problems, but that’s not stopping her from giving back.

The 12-year-old suffers from a rare dwarfism syndrome and regularly needs spinal surgery, Huffington Post reports.

Huff wanted to help others and raised the funds in two months to buy iPads for children with special needs. They are loaded with software to help the kids communicate. Before receiving the iPads, the students had to point at pictures in order to talk to their teacher.

Cassidy says she was just fulfilling her duty.

“I believe my job is to make them happy, instead of just focusing on myself,” she told Q13 Fox.

Truly selfless.
