Jaylen's Wish to Go to Tokyo

Jaylen's wish to go to Tokyo

“ It was the trip of a lifetime. ”


- Wish Kid Jaylen

Eighteen-year-old Jaylen from Laurel, MD, has always been up-to-date with the latest cars and technology. His love for new technological advances lead to a fascination with Tokyo, Japan. Jaylen, who bravely battled leukemia, also loves to travel and learn as much as possible about the culture of faraway places. When Jaylen found out Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic would be granting his one true wish, he couldn’t wait to go to Japan!

Jaylen’s favorite part of his trip was going to the Tokyo Motor Show. He was able to see all of the latest and greatest cars, and was even surprised with a ride through Tokyo in a Lamborghini! Jaylen also enjoyed hiking through the mountains and seeing Mount Fuji while in Japan. Jaylen especially enjoyed the scenic river view from his hotel! Upon returning, Jaylen and his family described the wish experience as “the trip of a lifetime.” 

Wishes like Jaylen’s enhance the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
