Fans hang out with Miley on So Undercover set

By the time he was 7-months-old, Daymon had already undergone three surgeries for spina bifida. Children born with this condition suffer from different degrees of paralysis, ambulatory problems, loss of sensation and deformation of the hips, knees and feet. He has had 10 surgeries on his feet and had a rod placed in his back. He cannot walk or feel his feet, and relies on a wheelchair for movement. When Daymon turned 12, he endured a surgery to remove the rod in his back and put in a more permanent device. He may also have to have surgery on his hip in the future for his scoliosis, a condition that has curved his spine. In addition, Daymon also has hydrocephalus, which is a buildup of cerebrospinal fluid in the skull. To relieve pressure from the fluid buildup, doctors placed a shunt in Daymon’s skull.

For his wish, Daymon wanted to meet his idol, Miley Cyrus.

Daymon and his family were flown out to meet Miley in New Orleans on the set of her new movie, So Undercover. After the limo ride to the church where the movie was filming, Daymon and his parents were waiting before the meeting and actually ran into Miley in the hallway! She greeted Daymon like a friend and hey talked for a bit and then re-met a bit later, continuing their conversation. Daymon even brought Miley some gifts, including a pink teddy bear that Miley loved and named “Pinky.”

“It was the best time of my life,” said Daymon.
