Every child has a dream or a wish that they hope to accomplish in life. Unfortunately, some children lack the necessary tools needed to bring their dreams to life. Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic is a chapter of the larger Make-A-Wish Foundation that helps grant wishes to children fighting critical illnesses. The impact left on a child after they receive their wish of time gives them the strength and inspiration needed in order to keep fighting. Recently, Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic partnered with Easterns Automotive Group to provide a child with the dream of a lifetime. Khiyon is wish participate that suffers from a severe form of epilepsy that results in him having seizures. His wish was to be a basketball player because he always had a love for the sport.
Teamwork makes the dream work because Easterns and Make-A-Wish came together to provide Khiyon with the one in a lifetime opportunity to meet and practice with the Washington Mystics. The players introduced him as part of the starting line-up; all while attending his very first ever live basketball game. The Washington Mystics went on to become the WNBA Champions later in the season. These are moments that he and his family will cherish forever!
