Joel had a “Capitol” Time in Washington D.C.!

Name: Joel
Age: 12
State: MI

Wish Kid

At the age of three, Joel was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which causes rapid deterioration of the muscles. This debilitating disease has left Joel fully reliant on a wheelchair for movement and he must endure hours of physical therapy a week.

While visiting our nation’s capitol on his wish trip, Joel got to enjoy a tour of the White House with Congressman Dave Camp. Not only that, but he had a blast touring the Capitol building and the National Mall. Joel’s trip to Washington D.C. was really a wish-come-true for the young American history buff.
