For six-year-old Kevin, the diagnosis of Cystic Fibrosis at 3 months old has brought him much suffering. This disease clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections, as well as obstructing the pancreas, which stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food. There is no cure for CF, and lung transplantation is often necessary as the condition worsens. So far, little Kevin must suffer respiratory treatments twice a day every day, various daily medications and is constantly in and out of the doctor’s office.
At 11 a.m., a beautiful limo from Dream Date Limo arrived to pick him up for a trip to Best Buy for the presentation of his wish. Waiting for him were some representatives of the local media, plenty of smiling faces and even Spongebob Squarepants! Once he received all of his fantastic “gamer goodies,” Kevin could hardly control his excitement: “He was just running around the store,” said Trista of her little boy. “He really enjoyed himself and got a bunch of good games.”
When it was time for lunch, Kevin had yet another surprise waiting for him at the Chick-fil-A on US Highway 98: even more surprises, yet another gift card and a visit from the Chick-fil-A cow! Again, Kevin was giddy with glee!
According to his mother, so far, Kevin is just anxious to get home and play his favorite game, “Halo 2.” He was so ready to play with his new games and toys, Kevin began opening boxes in the car before he arrived home! At that rate, his mother said they’d have to repack everything in order to make it into the house!
