“They told me about her and I said, ‘I have to dance with her, I have to do this. I’m too inspired,’” Derek told ABC News. “We are just going to continue to defy the odds.”

He added, “For me, it’s all about progress, progress and people’s happiness, and growing and contributing. I told her the other day, every step you take is already a success. Take that pressure off and just enjoy it.”
