When De’Vante was only a few weeks old, he was diagnosed with having a blood disease called Sickle Cell Anemia. This condition causes frequent debilitating pain crises and may lead to organ failure and even the possibility of strokes. De’Vante often experiences severe episodes of pain that land him in the hospital for up to 10 days at a time.
When De’Vante was heading outside with his mom to get in the car and go to Best Buy to pick up his wish computer, he saw a limousine waiting on the street and figured that it was for somebody else on his block. When he found out that the limousine was waiting to take him to Best Buy to fulfill his wish, he was speechless.
At Best Buy, he was treated like a celebrity as he picked up his computer with the biggest smile ever.
