Little boy granted wish


One little boy’s wish is soon to come true thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Today, the foundation, along with Big Play Entertainment Center, threw a sendoff party for the little boy and his family.
Eight-year-old Devon Browne cannot contain his excitement as he recently learned that he will be on his way to Disney World next week. His wish was granted thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Grandfather Ronnie Poore said, “This is just unbelievable what Make-A-Wish does for these children out here, in his condition and some far worse off. It’s just heaven sent. We worship God above and Make-A-Wish is special. It’s been unbelievable what’s happening.”
Since birth, Devon suffered with a rare condition that causes his heart valves to fail. Mother Jamie Poore said, “He has pulmonary atresia. It’s tricuspid regurgitation, which is very, very rare. The blood circulates in the wrong direction and blue blood leaks into the lungs.”
In just eight short years, Devon’s already had a lifetime of surgeries at such a young age, but his heart continues to pump strong. “He is the strongest person I know. He changed my life totally for the better. He is a blessing. He is the greatest little boy. I’m lucky to have him as my little boy,” said Jamie.
July 30th will be Devon’s first trip to Disney World and he’s ready to meet Mickey and Minnie and experience his first theme park.
