“ Receiving a badge and getting to ride in a police car was extraordinary ”

While visiting the Gonzales Police Department, Shane was made an honorary police officer for the day… an experience he will never forget!

Shane - March 2013 Wish KidShane’s wish was to visit the Gonzales Police Department in Gonzales, California.  The police officers from Gonzales read about Shane’s life and medical struggle in an online news article and they wanted to help.  They decided to donate to his disease and wanted to help make Shane’s life better so contacted Shane’s family and began communicating with him.  When Shane was asked what his wish would be, he said he wanted to meet his “back up boys” as he calls them, who had been emailing with him and sending him gifts on holidays and birthdays for some time.  While visiting the Gonzales Police Department, Shane was made an honorary police officer for the day… an experience he will never forget!  Receiving a badge and getting to ride in a police car made Shane’s trip extraordinary.  He even received his own uniform, which he wears often!
