Our first wish was granted to 16 year old Shawn Cleland of Footscray in Melbourne in 1985. An avid fan of AFL, Shawn's wish was to meet the players of his beloved Footscray. Shawn had never flown in a plane so Make-A-Wish® added an extra-special touch, flying Shawn to Sydney to see the Bulldogs play the Swans. "Walking was my first choice of a wish", said Shawn who was confined to a wheelchair due to his illness. His second was to play cricket for Australia or football for Footscray. Shawn's favourite player, Footscray legend Simon Beasley, paid him a visit before the trip, "Tell the team that if they get a thrashing they deserve a salary cut", Shawn joked.
It is only with your support that we can continue to help these children realise their wishes.
