This week’s Hero nomination comes from our social media princess Nikita who discovered this story online:
It’s about a young man named Reece… just a normal 13 year-old teenager from Louisville, Kentucky, but “normal” changed in 2012 when he was diagnosed with Leukemia.
But, get this… Instead of using offers from Make-A-Wish Foundation for himself, Reece wanted to help others. He made a list of things he wanted to do for children battling cancer, including improving hospital rooms, funding cancer research and granting more wishes! His ultimate wish? Raise $1 million.
You can help Reece with his cause, too. Learn more about donating reecemakesawish.org.
By the way, Reece is doing well and should be done with treatments this November.
I’m in, Reece – good for you, buddy!!!
