When 17-year-old Yehuda from Pikesville, MD, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, his life became filled with doctor’s appointments and hospital visits rather than all of his favorite hobbies. Just like many boys his age, Yehuda loves basketball, music and hanging out with family and friends. Upon learning Make-A-Wish®
Mid-Atlantic would be making his one true wish a reality, he was thrilled and immediately wished to have a shopping spree.
Yehuda took a limo to a local mall where he shopped the day away. He was thrilled to visit stores including Bloomingdales, Nordstrom’s, Adidas and Sunglass Hut where he picked out everything from new shoes to nice dress clothing. Adidas even provided Yehuda with an amazing shirt customized with his name on it! Yehuda finished his day by enjoying a delicious meal at Char Bar.
Yehuda’s wish is something he will remember for the rest of his life, demonstrating the impact of a wish come true. Wishes like Yehuda’s instill hope, strength and joy into the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions when they need it most.
