Timothy's wish to have a game room

Tim and his wish
Tim and his wish

Tim is a 14 year old who lives in Salem, Ore. and qualifies for a wish because he suffers from Cystic Fibrosis.  Because of his illness, Tim is not always able to play sports or do things that other 14 year olds often take for granted.  When his wish granting volunteers asked Tim what he would like for his wish-come-true, he enthusiastically told them he would like a game room in his house.  The Make-A-Wish Foundation went to work making Tim's wish extra magical with a large TV, speakers, a game system and even his favorite posters.  The magic of Tim's wish was shared by all who volunteered and donated things to make it extra special.  Tim was blown away, and not just by the loud music coming out of his speakers.  Tim's was one of 180 wishes the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oregon plans to grant this year with the help of donations from generous supporters like you!
