Five-year-old Alex, from Bethesda, Maryland loves pirates. He also spends a lot of time in bed because of a life-threatening heart condition. So when it came time to choose a wish, Alex picked one that he could enjoy every day—a pirate-themed bedroom makeover!
The Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic team went to work redecorating his bedroom with a pirate mural! The bright and cheery mural included a pirate named Alex and a pirate ship named "Captain Alex." The room was also furnished with a green (fake, of course!) alligator and big, black cannon! The mural was amazing, but there is even more for Alex to enjoy. He now has a new adjustable bed and a comfy recliner. As Alex’s mom says, "The room is cheerful, warm and fun!"
Alex's family is so pleased with the results.
