Make-A-Wish puts teen in the driver's seat

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Most kids have to wait until they're 16 to get the  keys to their own set of wheels, one local 14-year-old is getting his dream ride a little earlier.

Danny Adams has been battling brain cancer for years. His treatments left him unable to ride a bike with his friends, leaving him behind, until today.

“Publix or McDonald’s,” Adams says with a chuckle when asked the first place he place to go in his new, one of a kind, custom golf cart from the Make-A-Wish Foundation . “Because there’s something to eat, but I’m going to show it off first,” he says.

Adams plans to cruise his neighborhood so everyone can see his ‘Call of Duty’ themed golf cart.

“Features,” Adams laughs. “The features. I didn’t expect a TV to be in here. I didn’t expect the ultraviolets. They’re different from regular lights because they can glow in the dark.”

He forgot to mention the custom stereo and 12” rims, much more than Danny’s mother was expecting.

“I’m floored. I’m speechless. I mean it totally surpassed everything I imagined. This is amazing,” explained mom Dorothy Adams. “He's happy. He's happy. Today was a good day. We won. We won today.”

Wins are extra important when you're battling brain cancer, but there is one loser in all of this, Adams has new plans for his once loved Call of Duty video games. “Collect dust,” Adams says with contagious laughter.
