Rome Boy With Rare Muscle Disease Gets Wish to Go to Disney
5-year-old Seth Willson of Rome suffers from juvenile dermatomyositis, or inflammatory muscle disease. A diagnosis only 4 out of one million people are given. But Seth doesn't let it stop in and his courage caught the attention of Make a Wish in central New York.
Seth was at a Utica Pioneers game and thought he was just there to see some hockey. Little did he know his wish to go to Walt Disney World was coming true.
Seth is one of many central New York kids who've had their wish granted. Jordan Barahmeh of Oneida was a police officer for a day. Jon Cena granted Dillan Burr's wish to see WWE at Madison Square Gardens. He even met Cena before the event. Ayden Mosher of Herkimer went to Disney and Landen Smith of Sherrill enjoyed the Bahamas, all thanks to Make-A-Wish of CNY.
Make-A-Wish Central New York has granted more than 1700 wishes since it began in 1985 and more than 70 wishes last year alone. See how you can help make wishes come true at CNY.Wish.org.
