Emilio is 15 years old and has Cardio Myopathy. He lives at home with his mother and two older brothers. Emilio is a quiet, considerate, and thoughtful young man whose first concern is for his mother and family. He loves the Dallas Cowboys, country music, math, and computer programming. He wants to become a software engineer someday and already has his sights set on the colleges he wants to attend. Because of his love for technology, he wished for a laptop computer, elite mouse, speakers, headphones, iphone 7 Plus, and Apple watch. He is excited to be able to use these for school and to continue to learn about computer programming so his dream of becoming a software engineer can come true!
