UPDATE: Strangers Offer Communication Device to Kid in Need

It may not be much longer before an Eaton Rapids boy is able to communicate, thanks to the generosity of a couple of strangers.

Two people have come forward after learning about 11-year-old Chance Collins and his rare disorder known as Lukodystrophy.

We first told you about Chance a few weeks ago, when the Eaton Rapids Police Department let him be an officer for a day. They were so inspired by him, they helped get a Go Fund Me account going to raise money for a Tobii-- a computer that uses eye-gazing technology to communicate.

Just this week, two people who now longer have a need for that device offered it up to Chance. The family will likely need to upgrade the software and they are looking forward to seeing if it can help him.
