Parents of boy 'shocked, astounded and amazed'

Simon and Samantha Weaver, parents of Kyle, say the donation means his operation at the St Louis Children's Hospital in Missouri will now go ahead on 21st May.

A team led by renowned surgeon Dr TS Park will cut Kyle's spinal cord and re-attach it to his legs to improve his mobility in a procedure called selective dorsal rhizotomy.

We are shocked, astounded and amazed at the Williams' generosity. We can really get going with the surgery now.

But we have mixed emotions. They have helped us and I wish we could help them, but there's nothing we can do.

This huge donation will make a huge difference to us.

– Simon Weaver, father of Kyle
