Typically, when you hear a Make-A-Wish story, you hear about a child who goes to Disney World or meets a real-life superhero.  It’s really rare to hear a kid use their wish to benefit others.  As a child, Carlo Sandoval was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy. In May 2018, he was diagnosed with leukemia, which he continues to battle today.  Recently, 16-year-old Carlo asked the Make-A-Wish foundation to help him in giving comfort to kids with Autism who are undergoing medical procedures.  Because of all of his medical problems, he knows how difficult these appointments and treatments can be for those with sensory issues.  Carlo asked the foundation to donate a VECTA calming station to the UC Davis MIND Institute.  It’s designed to promote coping to patients undergoing medical treatments in a variety of ways, including bubbles that change colors, and mirrors that create interesting illusions.  The Make-A-Wish foundation came through and granted Carlo’s wish.  He’s a selfless young man, and Carlo has no intention of letting cancer stop him from spreading goodness and joy to as many people as he possibly can.
