On Friday, December 23rd, 2005, Lucas Braun of Wingham and his family experienced the power of a wish come true. Lucas’ wish was the 500th to be granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Southwestern Ontario, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
I want to thank you for making my son Luke’s wish come true! We were in Toronto to meet with you and your teammates on December 23rd, 2005. You met with Luke and our whole family after your game against the Boston Bruins. I have been meaning to write to let you know how much we appreciate the time you took with Luke to make his wish so special. Taking him to the back room to meet some of the other players was so kind of you. Luke has not stopped talking about his wish since Christmas and about how kind you and your teammates were to him.
