Each week we bring you stories of children battling life threatening illnesses and watch as their wishes turn to reality.
This week we introduce you to Ivan Garcia, who is battling a rare skin disease called Epidermoisis Bollosa. Ivan wished for a laptop computer so his wish granters, Erica de la Cruz and Andrea Casas made it happen. They planned a party at Peter Piper Pizza and while enjoying the fun and food he opened gifts.
Ivan found Sponge Bob sunglasses, games, a mouse, snacks and surprises and finally his laptop computer which was complete with a scanner and printer.
If you would like to help make wishes come true for children like Ivan, please call the Make-A-Wish Foundation at 956.686.WISH.
