Rhode Island boy with rare disorder to get man cave of his dreams

News

WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — A 10-year-old Rhode Island boy with a rare disorder is getting his very own man cave.

Officials announced Thursday that the Impossible Dream is using a $3,000 donation from state police to build Travis Williams the man cave of his dreams in the garage of his Cranston home.

Travis has a rare congenital disease called Caudal regression syndrome, and had asked the organization for the man cave so he can have a place to recover from future surgeries.

Travis was presented with memorabilia to go inside his man cave Thursday, including a signed jersey from New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

He also received a framed state trooper uniform patch and boxing gloves from Michael Valentin.

Travis’s man cave will be built this spring.
