KAMC's "Wish Wednesday" shares the stories of "wish kids" right here on the South Plains and gives you an inside look into the great things the Make-A-Wish chapter of the Texas Plains South is doing for those kids with life-threatening illnesses.
Rey, 26, was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy at just 7-years-old.
His brother and school nurse contacted the Make-A-Wish Foundation about Rey when he was a teen and the non-profit agreed to grant his wish.
When Rey was 18, he and his family jetted off to Washington, D.C., where they toured the nation's Capitol.
To see Rey's wish story, click "play" on the video box above.
It costs an average of $7,000 to grant a wish like Rey's wish.
If you'd like to donate, and remember all the money stays right here on the South Plains, contact Make-A-Wish at 785-9474 or visit www.facebook.com/wishlubbock.
