Garret DiMaggio, a 9-year-old boy suffering from Doose Syndrome, was recently granted his wish through the Make-A-Wish program. Garrett and his family were surprised with a brand new camper to travel in during the summer months. 

A week after Garrett's fourth birthday, he was diagnosed with Doose syndrome, an illness that causes children to abruptly lose muscle control and fall over. After brain surgery and regular treatment, he is working his way towards recovery. 

Originally, Garrett wished to go to Disney World, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, he decided a camper would be better. 

“If he can be outside every day, all day he would. So when we decided not to go to Disney world he said can we get a camper so we can go camping in the snow. So it's super exciting,” said Tiffany Owen, Garrett’s mom.
