Happy Wish Day! As Make-A-Wish GUAM & CNMI grant another wish.


Happy Wish Day! As Make-A-Wish GUAM & CNMI grant another wish.

This time it was for little Avan, a 6-year-old kid who wished for electronics.

The granting ceremony was held at Mcdonald’s in Tamuning, where Avan was able to enjoy his favorite food- chicken nuggets, together with his family.

There, he received a PS5, a 60inch” TV and an iPhone 13 — Aven and his family are also getting the chance to enjoy a staycation at the Pacific Island Club, where they will visit the Circus to celebrate his 6th birthday.

Granting Avan’s wish was a community effort, as the foundation reached out to the Guam Fire Department and GTA, among others, to be able to make the experience even more memorable.

Eric Tydingco, the Make-A-Wish president/CEO, spoke with PNC about the motive behind granting a wish.

He said, “One thing that we want the child and the family to go away with is this memorable experience, and we know that every day they’re dealing with a critical illness and it can’t be fun as a kid to have to do medical treatments all the time. And so we at least want them to have, you know, some time to be a kid and we feel that this is the best way that they can remember and give them hope and hopefully overcome their illness.”
