Posted: Updated:
BURTON (WJRT) - (05/29/14) - Walmart and the Kids Wish Network came together to make a local teen's wish come true.

Eighteen-year-old Andrew suffers from Crohn's disease.

Thursday, the Burton Walmart and Kids Wish Network donated more than $2,000 worth of video gaming systems to Andrew, which included an Xbox One and some games.

"Kids wish network, we really work to, you know, do as much as we can for children that are facing difficult situations. So it gives them a little bit of hope. We hear a lot from parents how, you know, getting a wish granted or going through one of our other programs, it really gives the child something to look forward to," said Sarah Dupree, with the Kids Wish Network.

Burton police and Mayor Paula Zelenko were there to see Andrew receive his gifts.
