If you’ve heard of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, you’ve probably heard a story about a young girl meeting her favorite celebrity, or a boy going on a once in a lifetime family vacation. The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants wishes no matter how big or small. We admire them because like the Life is Good Kids Foundation, they are building a better world for all kids.
Kellan was born with a cancerous tumor located in his spine. Doctors were successful at removing the tumor, but unfortunately the operation left Kellan paralyzed. Recently, the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted a smaller wish. The Make-A-Wish Foundation learned that Kellan’s wish was to be able to easily get to the barn in his backyard where his family spends a lot of time.
The Foundation partnered with a local construction company and worked to make Kellan’s wish come true. The construction company knew that Kellan needed a wheelchair accessible path – so that is exactly what they built.
The project is now finished, and Kellan’s dad reports, “He’s been buzzing up and down that path all week long. Every morning and every night, it’s the first thing he wants to do when he wakes up and the last thing he wants to do before he goes to bed.”
Kellan’s wish is a reminder that the little things are often the most important. Of almost anything in the world, he simply wished for a way to be able to be with his family and play.
