Josh's Wish


Josh is 17 years old and lives with a congenital liver disorder. Josh loves football but, due to his liver disorder and the risk of injury, hasn't had the opportunity to play many sports. 

He grew up watching football with his dad so, when the time came for him to decide what he wanted to wish for, he wished to meet his favourite football team: the Dallas Cowboys. 

Josh’s wish was more than a simple meet-and-greet; he became a Dallas Cowboy for a day. He travelled to Dallas with his family, toured the stadium, signed his ‘contract', attended practice and was interviewed on the sidelines by sports reporters. Josh and his family later caught an official game where his team won 26-20. 

The impact of Josh's wish will last a lifetime. Thank you to everyone who had a part in making Josh's wish come true.
