Wish Kid John Wonka

“ Having the opportunity with Make-A-Wish was a great getaway ”

John WonkaFifteen years ago, Wish Kid John received his amazing wish. At the age of six, after being diagnosed with and treated for Ewing’s sarcoma, John made a wish to go to Walt Disney World® Resort. John not only got to spend a week at the theme park with his family, but he also got to experience an exhilarating day of horseback riding! Since his diagnosis, he has defied the odds, playing both football and basketball as well as becoming an accomplished modern dancer. Recently, he was sworn in to the Police Academy of Norwich and is currently attending the Municipal Police Academy. He continues inspiring people through all he does.
