An 18 year old from Bryan is getting something very special from a very special organization. Devin Rummell is battling bone cancer. It was in 2012, after two years of knee pain, that Devin first received his diagnosis.
The Rummels had been taking ATV off-roading trips together with dozens of friends and family for years. When Devin got his surgery, he was told he couldn’t do that anymore because it would be too hard on his leg. Now, Devin’s cancer is finally in remission. And Make A Wish is making that even sweeter news for Devin. Prior to his remission, Devin had requested that his Jeep Wrangler be souped up with an off-road package in order to continue his love affair with off-roading. Now, according to the Bryan Times, that wish has become a reality. The finished product, donated by American Expedition Vehicles in Commerce Township, was a $20,000 gift that featured an upgrade package, which takes a stock Jeep Rubicon and transforms it into a highly-capable off-road machine. The package included front and rear bumpers, a 10,000-pound winch, custom wheels, 35-inch tires, a heat reduction hood, IPF lights, a snorkel system and a world-renowned dual-sport suspension. This past weekend, Devin and his family took the Jeep to Silver Lake Sand Dunes in Michigan, where he had the time of his life with it. Oh… in addition to the Jeep makeover, Devin got a puppy too.
