About Reece's Wish 

Reece is a normal 13 year old teenager from Louisville, KY that likes normal things; his iPhone, his friends, his bike, his family, Legos, and participating in his school’s theater productions. But Reece and his families view of “normal” changed in September 2012 when he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.  Instead of receiving a wish from Make-A-Wish, Reece decided to use his wish to give instead of receive. He made a list of things he wanted to “fix” and then narrowed his focus to these three: 1) updates to patient rooms and common areas at the hospital, 2) resources to help grant more wishes for kids in waiting and 3) funding for research to help find a cure for this awful disease. And with that, “Reece’s Wish to Raise $1 Million” was born. Reece’s Wish will support Teen Cancer America to help facilitate teen friendly improvements at children’s hospitals, like Kosair Children’s in Louisville and UK Healthcare Kentucky Children’s in Lexington. It will support Make-A-Wish to help grant wishes to children waiting on the resources needed to fulfill their requests.  And it will support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and its mission to find a cure for many types of blood cancer.
