REDMOND, Wash. - A San Francisco boy's wish to meet Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella in person became a reality on Monday, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Anooj Vandalore, 12, has a Duchenne Muscular dystrophy, is a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness.

His family said he loves playing Xbox, loves his Surface tablet and is a total Microsoft kid.

On Monday, he and some of his family members flew from the Bay Area to Seattle.

He started his day at the Microsoft store in Bellevue Square, where employees and volunteers gave him a warm welcome. He also got to play on the big screen and experience virtual reality.

His journey then continued to the Microsoft campus in Redmond, where he received a special one-one-one meeting with Nadella.

Vandalore and Nadella then visited the Microsoft Production Studios and several other sites around campus.

The Make-A-Wish Alaska & Washington chapter said its goal is to grant more than 360 wishes this year.

Last year, more than 330 wishes were fulfilled.
