Rhome was born with Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome. It is a rare x-linked recessive disease characterized by eczema, immune deficiency and low platelet count.

Before undergoing a very necessary bone marrow transplant, the Make-A-Wish Foundation will be flying him and his family to Nike’s headquarters in Beaverton, Ore., to start on his design session.

We’ll keep you updated with the story and a look at his designed when completed. Take a look at check out this year’s Nike Doernbecher Freestyle 2016 designers, click here.
