The 501st helps out Make-A-Wish in Burlington

Here’s your heartwarming story for Saturday: Vermont’s Make-a-Wish foundation just granted a wish to 14-year-old Xavier Hart-Marion, who was diagnosed with cancer last year.

The foundation gifted him a gaming computer, and brought in the Green Mountain Squad of the 501st Legion’s New England Garrison  to help with the presentation.

“He thought I was coming to get a record, he had no idea,” said Xavier’s dad Martin Marion.  “It was pretty funny.”

“It’s such a great culmination of everything he’s been through and everything we’ve been through as a family,” said Nikki Krysak, Xavier’s stepmother.
