Peter’s wish inspires his future


“ Having things to be hopeful about changes your whole mindset. ”

- wish recipient Peter

Twelve-year-old Peter stood tentatively at the pool’s edge. He breathed in the warm, fragrant Hawaiian air and looked out over the sparkly water in front of him.

It had been nine months since Peter had even dreamed of going swimming; nine months since his world came crashing down around him when doctors diagnosed him with Ewing’s sarcoma.

After his diagnosis, Peter went through 14 rounds of chemotherapy, 30 radiation treatments and two surgeries to tackle and remove an aggressive tumor on his left pelvis.

For those nine months, the days were filled with uncertainty, fear and pain. But then, you gave Peter something joyful to look forward to when you helped to grant his wish. 

Today, Peter is studying to be a pediatric oncologist.

Today, Peter dreams of pursuing a career where he can help kids with cancer.
