"You are an inspiration," the rapper writes in a note to Tyler Wesley.

Jokes abound that Kanye West's first and only love is Kanye West, but he clearly cares about his fans -- in particular, a paralyzed boy named Tyler Wesley.

Wesley, who was involved in a car accident five years ago that left him paralyzed from the shoulders down, posted a photo to his Instagram account Tuesday showing a pair of white Yeezy Boosts 350 and a note, apparently handwritten by West.

"Tyler, you are an inspiration," the note reads. "You show the world anything is possible. Thank you for sharing your story."

 

Thank you #KanyeWest & @adidasoriginals for the Custom "Cream White" Yeezy Boost 350 V2 --

Wesley has been actively documenting his progress and recovery on Instagram and Twitter, posting positive statements and videos of him working with physical therapists. A video he posted to Twitter in May even shows him taking a few shaky steps.

Thanks to those new Yeezys, Wesley will be able to take his next steps in style.
