VIDEO: Blake’s unforgettable Mother’s Day delivery to Mom

Blake’s unforgettable Mother’s Day delivery to Mom



We surprised four real moms with Mother’s Day deliveries from their children. The reaction this mom had to the gift from her son Blake was loud enough to wake her neighbors in Kingsport, TN!

About Blake Leeper: He was born a bilateral below-the-knee amputee, he was raised by his mom Edith to believe the only disability in life is a bad attitude. His ambition is to become the first American Paralympian to run in the able-bodied Olympic Games. With his sights set on Rio, Brazil in 2016, Leeper, he is known as “The American Bladerunner.”

      Teleflora,

      The commercials for Mother’s Day is the best and most heart touching ever! You can see not only the love from the sons and daughter, but how the love that is so priceless from the Mothers. You have my business for these moments you shared. Grateful customer. Thank you. Happy Mother’s Day to all MOMS.

    Do you really do these types of videos from children to their mother? This would be something I’m very interested in doing IF your company dies so. Please get back to me ASAP about this matter. Thank you.
