Riverdale teen meets wrestler in dream trip

We know that WWE Superstars and Divas (especially John Cena) do a ton of work with groups such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation so this story should come as no surprise.  I post it mainly due to the local, Atlanta, angle.
It isn't often that Germaine is the envy of anyone. The 13-year-old Pointe South Middle School student suffers from sickle cell illness, a life-threatening disease that keeps him from being able to enjoy the same things other boys his age do.
 The Kids Wish Network made sure that Germaine was the envy of many young folks on this day though:
For a few days, Germaine was able to set aside doctors, hospitals, tests and shots to meet his favorite pro wrestler, John Morrison, and see the sights around Tampa. He and his mom toured the Florida Aquarium and took a pirate cruise around the bay.
Kudos to Kids Wish Network, John Morrison and WWE for their part in this young man's "exciting and beautiful" time as his mother so eloquently put it.
