EDISON, N.J. (April 2017): Wish Kid Jackson loves watching zombie shows. They creatively spark his imagination, and have inspired him to write his own stories. Jackson is already working on his second zombie novel.
Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life threatening illnesses, made Jackson’s dream come true – and it was out of this world. His wish took him to a place overrun with “walkers”… attending 2 days as a VIP at Walker Stalker Con. He was able to mingle and be among all of his favorite zombies from the iconic series The Walking Dead. He also met many cast members from Sons of Anarchy.
During the wish, the family enjoyed accommodations at Courtyard Edison New Jersey, and memorable dining experiences at Seasons 52, The Cheesecake Factory and Skylark Diner.
“Putting a sick child in an environment that greatly motivates them is the best gift they can receive,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai. “We’d like to thank Walker Stalker Con for further inspiring Jackson and making his wish so memorable.”
