Arnold Schwarzenegger Makes Hudson Valley Teen’s Dream Come True
You might not believe what Arnold Schwarzenegger did to bring a smile to a Hudson Valley teen's face.
Recently, Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley helped Logan Decker’s dream of meeting Arnold Schwarzenegger become a reality.
Decker suffers from cystic fibrosis, an inherited life-threatening disorder that damages the lungs and digestive system. The Make-A-Wish foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Not only did the Make-A-Wish-Foundation grant the 15-year-old his wish, but Decker got to drive around in a tank with the Terminator himself!
“I thought that I was honestly going to cry, this is awesome,” Decker told Inside Edition. “Definitely the best day of my life."
The meeting took place at a secret location in California were Schwarzenegger keeps a collection of personal items. The tank that the two drove in, is very special to the former California Governor.
“This is the tank that I drove when I was 18 years old in the Austrian Army,” Schwarzenegger told Decker. "I was a tank driver."
Schwarzenegger was impressed with the 15-year-old from the Hudson Valley’s tank driving skills, calling them “pretty awesome.”
He also gave Decker some great advice.
“Everything is possible if you believe it," Schwarzenegger said. "Remember that."
After an embrace, Decker told the Terminator he would be seeing him in the future!
“I’ll be back!” he declared.
