Richard’s wish is to have a computer, but a Wish Drone came to his front door!

Richard has Ewing Sarcoma, and is not able to walk freely due to his illness. His wish was to have a computer to help perform his school activities. Before his special wish granting day arrived, we kept in touch with him and had a video call to keep his spirits up. On his special wish granting day, we surprised Richard with a Wish Drone flying to his home, a special invitation stood on the drone asking him to come outside. Waiting for him at the front door was a large box. At that moment, Richard was able to stand – because of the inspiration and motivation he received from this special wish granting experience! It was an amazing day, not only for Richard, but also for our Make-A-Wish staff and volunteers.

Thank you Make-A-Wish supporters!
