Lamar, MO Teen's Wish Comes True

Updated:
JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

Rylee Cunningham isn't just a teen with Cystic Fibrosis. He's also a teen in a limousine with a Best Buy shopping spree. Thanks to The Make a Wish Foundation and Best Buy, Rylee was given more than $2700 to spend on electronics. Some of which included a laptop, speakers, as well as a flat screen donated by Best Buy that was waiting for him as soon as he arrived. Rylee was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was two weeks old. According to the US National Library of Medicine the average lifespan of a person with C.F. is about 37 years. But the 18 year old hasn't let the disease affect his attitude.
