Jaxon, 12, with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Due to medical complications, he has been waiting four years for his wish. Jaxon is a cancer survivor, has been in remission since 2018, and has been waiting for his wish to come to fruition since then. His wishes have changed through the years as he has matured. His latest wish was to meet Noah Schnapp (Will from Stranger Things). This past weekend his wish came true. Jaxon and his parents flew to New York. The next day, they met Noah and his mom at a diner for lunch. Noah and Jaxon hit it off instantly, talking, laughing, rapping, acting silly and taking selfies. After hearing that Jaxon’s other favorite character is Eleven, Noah face-timed Millie Bobby Brown, which left Jaxson speechless. Netflix provided Jaxson with Stranger Things Merchandise as well. They sent it right to his hotel. Luckily, the Stranger Things merchandise arrived while the family was at lunch. Jaxon and his parents rode with Noah and his mom to the hotel where Noah happily signed everything for Jaxon.
Upon learning that Jaxon’s wish was to go to a taping of the show, Noah stated that maybe he could make that happen, and perhaps Jaxon could be an extra on the show!
After lunch, Jaxon and his family went to the Stranger Things Experience in Brooklyn. From the VIP passes to the pizza and drinks and huge bag of rainbow popcorn to the huge USS Butterscotch ice cream sundae and all the magnificent merchandise and souvenirs Jaxon was so generously given, he kept saying “this is the best day of my life”. He even got a backstage tour from Cat, the Stage Manager. He was absolutely blown away.
Mom told us “We will never forget all the time Noah and his mom Karine spent with us and their hospitality. It was truly an amazing and unforgettable experience.”
In Jaxson’s words, “God takes bad things like cancer and turns them into beautiful things.”
