Wish Family Story: J3

“J3”, as he was called by his family, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. His family wanted to take him to Disney World to enjoy a vacation as a family while he was still able to travel. A Special Wish coordinated everything from flights to meals, and everything in between, to ensure this family’s “special” wish came true. J3’s family wanted A Special Wish to know what this wish trip meant to them…

Dear A Special Wish,

I can’t thank you enough for giving us such a wonderful final experience with J3 and all of my family who were able to make it. We will never forget the generosity that all involved gave to us and our beloved son, J3. The importance of what all of you do can never be thanked or stated enough. We would never have been able to experience that trip without you and you were the only organization that allowed a child his age to receive a wish. It is with great sadness that I must tell you that J3 passed away today, just five days shy of his 21-month birthday. He may have only been on this earth for a very short time, but he was loved by all who met him and who got the chance to see that beautiful smile and those flirty eyelashes. Heaven has a beautiful angel tonight.

**J3’s Dad**
