Due to Michael’s life-threatening respiratory condition, he is often in the hospital or hooking up to IV’s at home for treatment which can be disheartening. His one true wish was to have a shopping spree at Best Buy so he could pass the time with games and devices.

“I was looking forward to getting things I wouldn’t have been able to get on my own,” said Michael.

Michael was even more excited to find out his friend could come with him on his wish. The morning of his wish, a SUV limo came to pick Michael, his friend, and his parents to take him on his wish day experience. Before heading to Best Buy, they stopped at P.F. Changs, one of Michael’s favorites, for a relaxing lunch.

When the group finally arrived at Best Buy, the staff greeted Michael at the entrance. There was a welcome sign and balloons, plus a basket of items he had requested was on the counter, already picked out for him!

For the rest of the shopping spree, Michael and his friend were escorted through the departments and Michael picked out on the other items on his wish list, as well as some items he didn’t even know he wanted!

“It was amazing and a lot of fun. If I had the chance I would do it again,” said Michael.
