Samuel,10 | Medulloblastoma
Samuel is an energetic kid with one goal in life: to play soccer…but not just anywhere. He wished to play with his uncle Luciano, who manages a team in New York City. Both Samuel and his uncle share a common bond. Samuel is currently facing cancer and his uncle lost a son to cancer before Samuel was born.
Children’s Wish Foundation fulfilled Samuel’s Wish to travel from Italy to America and play soccer with his uncle and his team. Samuel was surprised not once, but twice! While playing with his uncle and the team, 50 of Samuel’s family members came out to see him play and to throw him a surprise birthday party. They had an Italian picnic with a photographer on-hand to capture the entire day.
