Greenville boy's wish granted to meet basketball star

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - A Greenville Boy got a big sendoff Monday night.

10-year-old De’ahntay “Bubba” Barnes was diagnosed last year with a Wilms Tumor, that’s a form of cancer of the kidney. Bubba’s dream is to meet his favorite basketball player, Chris Paul of the LA Clippers. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is making that dream come true.

Monday the Make-A-Wish Foundation partnered with the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office and Greenville Fire and Rescue for a special escort to Bubba’s sendoff party.

Bubba’s family says two of his brothers were also diagnosed with cancer last year. The whole family will get to go along for Bubba’s trip. They’ll fly to California next week.
