Wish Kid Dan

April Dan

“ Make-A-Wish granted an over the top, unforgettable wish beyond my imagination ”

April Dan - copy2Just over twenty years ago, Wish Kid Dan was granted an all-access pass to the Washington Redskins during the team’s annual training camp. For one week, he ate and trained with the team and gained confidence as a sixteen-year-old amputee and cancer survivor. The power of his wish has led him to participate in two Paralympics as a member for the United States Disabled Alpine Ski Team, graduate with his master’s degree in social work, and coach high school lacrosse and the local ski team. Dan married his high school sweetheart Lori and has two beautiful daughters, Ava and Grace.
