John is a bright teenager with a passion for basketball and baseball. His favorite teams are the Boston Red Sox and the Boston Celtics. John is also interested in criminal justice and he enjoys his English classes in school.
John started having issues with his eyes including experiencing blurry vision. Since that wasn’t normal for John, he was given a brain scan which showed that he had two tumors: one on his pituitary gland and one in the middle of his brain. John endured a surgery to implant a port for chemotherapy treatments and he was given four cycles of chemo.
For his wish, John got a chance to hang out with the Boston Celtics during a practice session before their big game against the New Jersey Nets. He had a fabulous time and even got to attend the game the next night! He must have been good luck for the Celtics, because they won! What a wish!
