HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- An 18-year-old from Henrico was treated to an electronic shopping spree thanks to the Make-A-Wish foundation.

18-year-old Naielle, who was diagnosed with cancer, loves playing video games with his family and wished to have an electronic shopping spree.

On Tuesday morning, Make-A-Wish staff, volunteers and supporters gathered to celebrate Naielle’s wish with a surprise car parade outside of Best Buy in Short Pump, and were joined by members of Henrico Police Department and Henrico Fire Department

Following the car parade celebration, Naielle received some of the items he had selected for his shopping spree including a new phone, air pods and game system.

While Naielle was shopping, Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia had arranged for Geek Squad to be at his house setting up his new TV, sound system, and gaming chair.
