On Tuesday, Ethan Bundick’s dream of having his truck tricked out came true.
About a year-and-a-half ago, Bundick was diagnosed with stage II Hodgkin’s Lymphoma following a surgery to remove a tumor that was discovered in his neck.
Once the tumor was removed, tested and the diagnosis delivered, the treatments began.
Chemotherapy is hard on a person’s body. And the diagnosis of cancer weighs heavily on the mind and soul.
That’s where the Make-A-Wish Foundation steps in.
It grants dreams and desires of children who have received life-altering diagnoses.
It’s not just for the terminally ill, but for all of those whose lives are changed due to an illness or injury.
Bundick is not the first child locally to see their wish granted and most assuredly won’t be the last.
While his wish was a little different than most, it was just as precious nonetheless.
It is the partnerships, sponsorships and donations that Make-A-Wish receives that make these things a reality. Whether it is a once-in-a-life-time trip to Dinsey World, Hawaii or, in this case, a fixed up truck, they make things happen.
They put smiles on kids’ faces, tears in parents’ eyes, and memories that will last a lifetime.
