NORTH CAROLINA, USA — With the help of Youtuber MrBeast, one Triad man is able to see things more clearly.
Satchel Grinage was featured in a video where MrBeast provided life-changing surgery to 1,000 blind people. The video had more than 50 million in two days.
Grinage lives in North Carolina and was diagnosed with keratoconus as a child. This happens when the cornea thins and gradually bulges outward into a cone shape causing blurred vision and sensitivity to light.
MrBeast came across a GoFundMe page raising money for a corneal transplant to improve Satchel’s vision. He paid for the surgery and gifted Grinage a Tesla a few weeks later.
Grinage wasn't able to get his learner's permit or drive, but now all of that is a thing of the past.
