Valdosta- C. J. Myers and his family are treated like movie stars as they roll up to Colonial Mall in Valdosta. The 13-year old is about to embark on the wish of a lifetime - a $2,000 shopping spree.
The rising eighth grader isn't letting his congenital heart condition get him down. In fact his first stop was to make a special friend that he in turn gave a new heart.
C. J. made sure not to forget his sister Monique in the fun. He says he's just returning the love she shows him when he's sick. Though they don't always get along, Monique says there are things she loves to do with her big brother.
"We watch TV and play the computer," she says.
After learning a little bit of magic C. J. decided to make his day last a lifetime and capture it on film. Making sure not to forget the most important people in his life, Monique and mom.
C. J.'s shopping spree will also be a day his wish coordinator will never forget. "I was a wish child and when I was 15 I had leukemia, so to give back to this organization and to see other kids have a wish like I had is just wonderful, so to give back to the community and sick kids it just means a lot to me," admits Gwen Easter.
Even though his may be sick, C. J. is living his life touching the hearts of others.
C. J.'s mom, Berta Myers says her son is a happy child and loves to play outside with other children. He says he enjoys school except for one thing - homework.
