EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (October 2019): Jake loves to play video games and make videos for his YouTube channel. Jake suffers from Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a severe and progressive form of muscular dystrophy that causes muscle weakness and eventually results in muscle atrophy. Jake wished for a new Canon G50 video camera so he can make better quality videos for his YouTube channel.
Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, made Jake’s dream come true by purchasing him a bountiful gift card to Best Buy. He’s now able to have a new video camera of his choosing and any other essentials he needs to make his channel even more successful. Jake can’t wait to use his gift card to purchase his perfect camera and is looking forward to shopping on Black Friday for the best deals and specials.
“Jake’s wish gives him something to be excited about, helping him pursue his biggest dreams,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
