Wish granted for 8 year old boy with brain tumor

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Christmas came early for one little boy in Huntsville. Eli Williams is 8 years old and he has a brain tumor. His one wish was to have a pop up camper so that him and his family could take fun trips together.

So the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Bankston Motor Homes in Huntsville teamed up to make it happen.

Along with a new, 2013 Quicksilver 10.0 pop up camper, Eli was also given a bunch of camping necessities. Eli has 2 sisters and 1 brother, but the family has had to spend a lot of time apart during the last year because of Eli's illness.

His mom, Kristie, says camping in the new pop up will be the perfect way to make up for lost time. This is going to be exciting for us to have something we can all do together."

The family is already planning their first trip to Joe Wheeler State Park.
