A partnership between Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, Camping World and Make-A-Wish Central New York has gifted five critically ill children with campers.
Callin Mack, 6, of Sterling, and his family were the recipients of a 2021 Gulf Stream Enlighten 25BH on June 25 at Camping World in Syracuse.
Callin, who has a rare benign tumor called a craniopharyngioma, asked for the camper to be able to camp with his family and spend time at the beach.
The tumor was found during a routine eye exam in 2018 and he has undergone radiation, procedures and surgeries. He will need to be monitored indefinitely by doctors.
