The Make a Wish Foundation is one of the noblest foundations in the world. Their goal and purpose is to make dreams come true for young cancer patients.

Knowing that cancer is a deadly condition with no cure, the foundation makes sure that every young cancer patient gets his one dream and wish come true.

16 years Peter dreamed about being a naval aviator. He can still become one. But his way will be harder after a seizure episode and a cancer diagnosis left him facing a long, difficult, and exhausting treatment plan.

With the support of his family, Peter, an avid student and athlete, bravely faced radiation, chemotherapy, and all those prolonged hospital stays.

He kept his spirit up, and kept dreaming of going to the military. His wish came true when the Make a Wish Mid-Atlantic helped him go to an active aircraft carrier. Special thanks goes to the US Navy who helped and assisted Peter in his wish. This is his story.
