  • I wish to have

Diagnosed with leukemia in 2016, Mason’s childhood has been filled with chemotherapy, painful treatment protocols and more time spent with doctors and nurses than with friends and family. When a social worker from Children’s National Medical Center referred Mason for a wish, he began eagerly brainstorming his most heartfelt wish, and suddenly, he had something to look forward to. Not long after, Mason met two new friends from Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic, his Wish-Granting Volunteers, and he excitedly shared his wish to have a safari-themed playroom. 

On Mason’s sixth birthday, he and his family and friends eagerly awaited the big reveal. Kept secret for several weeks leading up to the big day, Mason was speechless when he opened the doors for the first time. Complete with a loft, tree, slide, rope swing and look out, Mason finally had a space of his own where he and his friends could play for hours on end. 

Mason’s wish to have a playroom gave him something to focus on other than tests and treatments and allowed him to have something of his own that brings fun and excitement to his life. Granting wishes like Mason’s provides children with life-threatening medical conditions hope, strength and joy when they need it most.
