A Japanese Getaway for Timothy!

     During his brave battle with cancer, Timothy had a lot of time to dream. While inside the hospital room he would watch anime and loved having that as his escape. Thanks to Make-A-Wish® Colorado, Timothy and his entire family were able to travel to this beautiful country and witness some of the world’s most famous and historic landmarks. After waiting for two years to become healthy enough to travel, Timothy was finally ready for his wish to be granted!
     During their highly-anticipated adventure through Japan, this Make-A-Wish family explored all of the top destinations and landmarks: Asakusa-Kannon (the oldest and most popular Buddhist temple in Tokyo), Nakamise Shopping Arcade, the Yasukuni Shrine, the Imperial Palace, Tokyo One Piece Tower and the Suginami Animation Museum! Timothy especially loved his experience learning about animation and anime.
     Timothy and his family also participated in a photo shoot where they wore different Japanese garb. The photoshoot was not only a unique experience but also allowed Timothy and his family to physically bring their memories of their trip home with them.
     Timothy’s mom expressed her sincere gratitude and excitement after returning home from the international voyage. “It hard to express the excitement, the joy and the love that Make-A-Wish gave to Timothy,” she explained. “We are truly grateful to have such an amazing organization. Thank you for making Timothy’s wish come true!!”
