The D-MAN Foundation helping to put those who are wheelchair-bound in front seats for the Cruise

WEST BLOOMFIELD (WXYZ) - Ziad Kassab knows what it's like for people to be confined to a wheelchair with transportation that can be complicated and limited to a van.

Kassab knows because when his brother Danny was just seven-years-old, a car accident left him paralyzed and bound to a wheelchair. But Kassab says his brother's face would always light up when they took him for a ride in their mother's convertible.

Sadly, Danny passed away in 2009, but Kassab started The D-MAN Foundation (Danny's Miracle Angel Network) in his brother's honor to help spread the kind of joy Danny experienced when cruising around town with the top down.

And on the eve of the 2014 Dream Cruise, participants got the chance to ride shotgun down Woodward Avenue in classics and convertibles driven by their volunteer owners.
