Valdosta - Eighteen year old Geoffrey Mikell dreams of being in a rock band. "I love music and definitely want to pursue a career in it," said Mikell.
Now his goal of becoming a rock and roll musician is a little closer in site, thanks to the Make a Wish Foundation and Rutland's Music. "I got an electric guitar, a new amplifier and an effects pedal," said Mikell.
Geoffrey has cystic fibrosis, a genetic respiratory disease that often causes deadly lung infections. "The life-expectancy isn't good and we had another son to die from it six years ago," said Fred Mikell.
Geoffrey's love of music helps him make it through the tough times. "This is his dream, to get these great instruments, and it means more to him than anyone could ever know," said Shannon. "He goes through so much with this disease and truly deserves it."
Along with a few of his friends, Geoffrey has formed a band called "One Way." They hope to make an album soon and dedicate it to the Make a Wish Foundation.
