SANTA MARIA, Calif.--Due to a safety mask to prevent the spread of the coronavirus you couldn't see the smile on Rylen's face as a car parade surprised him, but you could tell he was happy as he lifted his head to watch.
Rylen, 9, is living with a progressive nervous system disorder .
The Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties organized the drive-by parade with the help of the Santa Maria Police Department and other volunteers.
The nonprofit granted Rylen's wish to get a fishing kayak that will allow him to fish offshore with his father, Michael Gallegos.
Rylen, 9, is living with a progressive nervous system disorder. His mother also had the disorder and died last year.
