A Perry high schooler was the lucky recipient of a bass boat thanks to the Make a Wish Foundation.

Cameron Patrick was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia back in 2016.  While he was going through chemotherapy in Toledo, he filled out paperwork with the Make a Wish Foundation.

On Saturday, Feb. 3rd, his wish came true and the foundation gifted him a fishing boat.  Cameron is now in remission, and says that he's excited to take his friends out on his new boat, as fishing has been an important thing for him for a long time.

"Fishing has been a big sport in my life; this past summer that’s all that me and my buddies did, and when they asked me what I wanted, that was the first thing that popped in my head," said Patrick, who is a sophomore at Perry High School.  "I had restrictions and I wasn’t allowed to do much, and when they said I could do stuff, that’s the one thing I did all the time."

Make a Wish grants a wish on average every 34 minutes.
