A Star Trek fan got more than she wished for from the Make-a-wish foundation when she visited Dragoncon.  A huge Star Trek fan, Dawn Garrigus suffers with mitochondria disease, a progressive illness that causes loss of muscle coordination, weakness and pain, seizures, vision and/or hearing loss, gastrointestinal issues, learning disabilities and organ failure. The 11-year-old's Make-A-Wish request was to simply attend DragonCon, a popular sci-fi and fantasy convention.

Also visiting the convention was Captain Picard himself, Patrick Stewart and he heard Dawn was attending and decided to give her a huge hug and spent time for a chat with the fan.

Dawn's mother, Kristy Garrigus, also said she had seen some positive changes in Dawn's condition since meeting Stewart.
"She does not feel as isolated and to be blunt, it was the happiest we had seen her in quite some time...Her brief visit with Sir Patrick has alleviated that feeling which we cannot begin to express gratitude for," she said to Mashable.
