Make-A-Wish: 11-year-old Bubba, battling renal failure, gets online shopping spree

    It's time for your dose of inspiration on this Monday morning with Make-A-Wish Monday! Today, we're introducing you to 11-year-old Bubba.

    In summer of 2015, Bubba woke up because he was having trouble breathing. Doctors initially diagnosed him with pneumonia, but later confirmed he was battling acute renal failure.

    While he waits for a transplant, he goes through dialysis 3 times a week, each time for 3 hours. Along with battling renal failure, bubba also suffers from autism, leaving him non-verbal.

    What makes bubba the most happy during his treatments is exploring the internet and "traveling the world" on an iPad, so it was no wonder his wish was to have an electronics shopping spree.

    Bubba's dream became a reality thanks to house advantage and Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada.
