Here's the wish we received:
Dear Bianca's Kids,
I would like to nominate my student Alexander (AJ) Kusch to have his wish granted. AJ has been my student since March and that is when he was first diagnosed with a brain tumor. He had just started a new school, was trying to make new friends, and adjust to living in a new house, when his medical problems began. Shortly after arriving in my classroom, AJ had to be out for extended periods of time in order to be treated in Delaware. However through this whole process AJ consistently comes into class with a smile on his face! He is facing such a hardship, yet he comes to school each day and wants to learn and do well.
AJ is always coloring and one of his favorite things to color are baseball pictures. We once had a conversation that he has never been to a Phillies game, but that he hoped to go one day. His family enjoys watching baseball together and I think it would be a wonderful experience for his family to attend a Phillies game together. He loves his mom, dad, little brother, and sister so much and I think that this special memory would be wonderful for AJ. I know that AJ would appreciate any special attention and would flash his huge smile if his wish is granted.
Dear Ms. Lizza, we are happy to report that your wish for AJ has been granted. We are providing him great seats and parking passes for his very first Philadelphia Phillies game. Oh, and we "one upped" this wish. We are also bringing AJ to meet and spend the day with Philadelphia Eagles at training camp in July.
Thanks for being an awesome teacher and for helping us to make this very worthy little boy's dreams come true.
