Peter is 9, and loves robots.

He's also living with adult lymphoma, a lung condition that makes it tough to fight off infection. But he still loves gadgets, and wants to see robots in action.

Enter Make-A-Wish.

Today, Peter gets to take a special tour of Anybots, a maker of robots in Silicon Valley. Anybots makes them, and is eager to show them off to a young person who says it would be great to have a robot, so "whnever I break something, I can blame it on the robot."

The Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish is making it happen, with support from Anybots.

Stay tuned for robots, along with human smiles.
