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.
