By the huge smile on his face, you would never guess Jesus has been through so much. He was born with a nervous system disorder that also left him deaf. Although he can’t communicate verbally, his family knows exactly what makes him happy.
“He loves to play outside and take walks with us,” said his sister, Nayeli. But while pushing in his manual wheelchair, his arms would get tired and he couldn’t move as fast as the rest of his family.
Jesus’ doctor mentioned Make-A-Wish® to the family at an appointment, and his sister didn’t waste any time calling the Make-A-Wish Mid-South office to refer her brother for a wish.
When Jesus’ new power chair arrived, he lit up. “He loves it,” said Nayeli with a smile. Not only has Jesus’ wish given him and his family happiness today, but it has granted them a hopeful look toward the future. His family believes it will continue to help them make joyful memories together outside—where Jesus loves to be.
