Heber's Shopping Spree Wish

Heber Hero Image

“ This trip was a whirlwind of fun... ”


- Heber

With a deep love for music, you will often find Heber strumming his guitar, teaching himself to play piano, or jamming on the drums. He’s also a video game junky and a computer guru. The youngest of seven children, he is an easy-going 17-year-old who is loved by many.

Heber was diagnosed with cancer. Despite his overwhelming trials, Heber maintains an unfailingly positive attitude and meets his challenges head-on with poise, confidence, and courage.  Heber had various wish options in mind, ranging from meeting Jennifer Lawrence or hanging with Liam Neeson to paintballing with Navy Seals. He ultimately decided on a shopping spree, with a Taylor guitar at the top of his shopping list. 

His shopping extravaganza was a success, especially thanks to Heber’s careful pre-trip planning. The day started with a huge stretch limo and ended with a giant steak at Texas Roadhouse. In between, Heber became the proud new owner of a laptop, working light saber, mattress and box spring, guitar, guitar case and stand, 3DS, two games, and two suits. 

At his star raising party, Heber looked dashing in one of his new suits as he played a song he wrote on his new guitar. Heber described his trip as a whirlwind of fun, and he enjoyed being able to feel special not because had cancer, but because he was Heber and had made a wish.
