Four-year-old Jaylen from New Carollton, MD loves superheroes, especially Spiderman and other Marvel characters. During his brave battle with leukemia, Jaylen stayed busy by playing with his favorite superhero action figures. So when he found out that he would be receiving a wish from Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic, Jaylen knew his one true wish was to have a shopping spree to add more action figures to his collection!

When Jaylen isn’t busying playing with his superhero action figures, he enjoys playing outside on playgrounds, swinging on swing sets and blowing bubbles. He also loves to play with Legos. Jaylen has always been a huge superhero fan and loves to show off his Batman and Superman action figures. He even dressed up as Batman for Halloween! On the day of Jaylen’s wish, he couldn’t wait to go shopping for more superhero action figures to add to his already growing collection. Jaylen was treated like a VIP for the entire day, including a limo ride to all of his shopping spree stops. In addition to picking up new action figures, Jaylen got to stop at the Disney and Lego stores as well.  

Jaylen’s wish gave him a day that focused on something he loves after facing a tough battle with leukemia. Granting wishes like Jaylen’s enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
