CONCORD, N.C. — The Concord community came together Saturday to let one young man know how special and loved he is.
Antique car owners and the Concord police and fire departments all took part in a parade for Kevin Dearmon. He turned 25 years old.
Not only is this a milestone birthday, but also Dearmon has a rare terminal brain disorder.
In 2006, doctors told his family he wouldn’t live two more years, but he defeated those odds and they wanted to make his 25th birthday special.
“Kevin’s a special guy,” said his mother Janet Schmitt. “This is a huge milestone birthday for us. One that will go down in history as such a remarkable time.”
The fire department also gave him a signed firefighter helmet and some cool gear.
