I Loved My Wish!

Name: Merritt
Age: 17
State: AL

Just this year, Merritt went in to the doctor to complain about not being able to breathe very well. Tests showed that he had a tumor – called an infratemporal fossa schwannoma – in his left cheekbone that was connected to both his left optical nerve and his aortic artery. This benign tumor was also creating pressure in his brain. Merritt was taken into a risky 20 hour surgery, where surgeons successfully removed the tumor. Unfortunately, Merritt has been suffering from complications of the surgery and he must be monitored every few months, as there is a chance that the tumor will grow back.

For his wish, Merritt got some special paint for the 1979 AMC AMX car that he is working hard to restore all by himself. He can’t wait to get started on the painting this coming summer!
