“ William's wish gives him the courage to face his illness ”

William's Collage


William is fourteen and suffers from Osteosarcoma. He is a very special young man. He loves music and action sports. His celebrity hero is none other than Rob Dyrdek. He spends his time with his friends; skate boarding and bike riding.

When first asked about his wish, William said that he wanted to go on a Big Foot hunt. Unfortunately, his health took a turn for the worse and was therefore unable to proceed with the hunt. After much thought, Edward changed his wish. One of his very favorite shows is Man v. Food on the Travel Channel. During one episode The Big Texan Challenge, a steak eating contest, was featured. Contestants competed to eat a 72oz steak dinner. William knew he had to try it for himself.

William was granted his wish early this past summer. He did not finish the entire 72oz steak dinner, but he had a blast trying.
