Jessica Frick and Emmy Hopkins, seniors at Washington High School, are working hard on a DECA project with the Make-A-Wish Foundation involving a local 5-year old boy and his dream to go to Legoland California in Carlsbad, Calif.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation helps grant wishes to kids with life-threatening medical conditions, giving them more than an amazing experience. A wish come true has the power to make kids feel stronger, more courageous, and more determined to overcome their illnesses. Many families and healthcare providers believe the wish experience is the turning point in a wish kid's battle against their illness.

The boy was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, cancer of the soft tissue, in December of 2016. He had surgery to remove the tumor and has had a number of tests and hospital visits.

Initial tests indicated that in addition to his tumor, there were spots in his lungs making his diagnosis Stage 4. He was facing an entire year of chemo, radiation and blood transfusions. A few weeks into his treatment, a new set of scans showed no concern about his lungs and he was downgraded to Stage 1.

Since his scans in February, no sign of cancer has been found. He completed chemo in June and is strong and healthy today.
The boy enjoys learning new songs and painting in Kindergarten. He loves Legos, cars and trucks, fire trucks, playing with friends and digging in the dirt.

The family is planning a trip to Legoland California. The boy wants to drive the cars and get his Legoland Driver’s License.
Frick and Hopkins have already held a number of fundraisers, such as a cupcake drive, a Miracle Minute, raffles, T-shirt sales and donation events.

A dine-to-donate will take place at Applebee’s in Washington December 6 from 4-9 p.m.

They will host a Make-A-Swish Night on January 16 at Washington High School during a girls and boys basketball double-header, where they will raise money and hope to meet the family for the first time.

The goal for Frick and Hopkins is to raise $5,000. They are almost halfway there with over $2,000 already raised. The latest donation was over $800 from the Washington Police Department from their No-Shave November fundraiser. See the photo below.


The Washington Police Department donated approximately $800 from their No-Shave November fundraiser to a Make-A-Wish Foundation project, spearheaded by Washington High School DECA students Jessica Frick and Emmy Hopkins, who are raising money to send a local cancer patient and his family to Legoland California.
