This weeks hero is 17 year-old Adrian Vela from Edinburg who is battling Hodgkin's disease.
Adrian did not take his Make A Wish request lightly and at first the teen considered a travel wish, but decided to go with the more practical choice of a laptop computer. Adrian did not know when his wish would be granted, but while eating his favorite dishes at a restaurant and his wish grantors surprised him with a state of the art laptop. It was complete with a printer, scanner, case, software, and games and CD's.
If you would like to help make wishes come true for other children like Adrian that are battling life threatening illnesses, call the Make A Wish Foundation at 956.686.WISH.
