Nathanael’s Wish Comes True


April 19, 2016


Minot, ND

Nathanael, an 18-year-old from Minot, was diagnosed with cancer in October 2014. He was referred to Make-A-Wish® ND in January 2015 by his mother. Now, after revealing to him that his wish is being granted, Nathanael is getting ready to make his wish come true.

On Friday, April 22nd, Nathanael and his family are heading to Oklahoma City, OK to meet his favorite band, Skillet. While there Nathanael will realize his dream of meeting the band and attending one of their concerts. Before the concert he will also get the opportunity to have a mini one-on-one guitar lesson with Skillet’s lead guitarist, Seth Morrison.

In order to get Nathanael’s guitar all prepared, Zach Schultz, from Jacobsen Music, in Minot agreed to give his guitar a tune up as well as help him pick out a new guitar case. With his guitar all ready to go, we are sure Nathanael will have a memorable time during his wish.

Nathanael and his family will also get some extra time to explore all the amazing sights and attractions that OKC has to offer. But most importantly they will be able to create life-long memories together as a family. Having a wish come true is an opportunity for children and their families to get away from the monotony that is a life-threatening illness. The hope is that these families, including Nathanael’s, will enjoy every second of the experience and make life-long memories.

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Since its inception in 1985, Make-A-Wish North Dakota has granted over 780 wishes to children across the state.
