On Friday, eleven-year-old Darion lived out every child's dream!

He went on a shopping spree to pick all the toys he wanted.  It was a dream fulfilled by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

"We contacted GameStop and they provided a $400 gift card, and Make-A-Wish provided another $2,000.  It feels real good to see him smile," said Darion's father, Aaron Johnson.

Darion's father explained that everyday has not always been so happy. Darion is battling sickle cell anemia, a life-threatening disorder that runs in their family.

Johnson is also raising Darion and his twin Travion on his own.

"There's a lot they've been through together, this is special for them"

Darion makes sure to snag some toys for his twin brother and other family too.

He soon declared his favorite of all the toys to be the "XBOX 4!"

After finishing at Gamestop, Darion headed off in his limo for the day tom complete his shopping spree.

"Thank you and I'm going to have a great Christmas," said Darion.
