UPDATE Hermon Teen + Dale Earnhardt Jr. Make A Wish [VIDEO]
Back in 2010, Jeffrey Buzzell who lives in Hermon was a 15 year old, who had a terrible kidney disease and his kidney function was hovering around 18 percent and he desperately needed a kidney transplant. The Make A Wish Foundation granted Jeffrey’s wish to meet Dale Earnhardt Jr.
As you can see, Jeffrey found out his wish was to be granted at Blackbeard’s, a go kart track in Bangor. Junior invited Jeffrey and his family to come down to Charlotte and go go kart racing at Junior’s home, and then surprised him further by inviting him to the All Star Race and making him an honorary crew member.
Fast forward four years! We are happy to tell you that Jeffrey had a kidney transplant on February 22, 2011 and feels fine now. He is going to school at Eastern Maine Community College, and studying business management, and will be graduating in May 2014. He currently works at the Hannaford store on Union Street in Bangor, and yes, Dale Earnhardt Junior is still his favorite driver!
