Joel, 12 Elyria, OH
I wish to have a treehouse

Joel loves the outdoors and to help on the farm. He loves to shoot targets, ride on his dirt bike, and help tend to the cows.

Joel was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cancer that affects Joel’s lymphatic system, causing lymph nodes in his neck and armpits to swell and frequently making him ill.

When Wish-Granting volunteers visited Joel he told them that his wish was to have his own treehouse in the woods. He loves to be outside and explore the woods behind his house. He wanted a place where he could enjoy everything nature has to offer and where he could hang out with his friends. He most looks forward to having sleepovers with his best buddies!

The Wish-Granting process has helped renew Joel’s sense of hope and strength. With his family and friends at his side, he will create more joyful memories in his treehouse that will last a lifetime.

Thank you for making wishes like Joel’s come true!
