For most teenagers, a shopping spree in their favorite stores with the ability to wander around and pick up all of the things they have been wanting and hoping for is the ultimate wish. For fourteen-year old, Cesilio, this dream and more came true in November of 2013. Being diagnosed with Osteosarcoma completely changed Cesilio’s life but he still remains an open-minded, optimistic, friendly young man. He loves to play soccer and hopes to one day become a professional soccer player himself.
The day of Cesilio’s wish, he and his family were picked up in a limo and driven off to Best Buy where Cesilio began his ultimate shopping spree. Best Buy gave him a customized shopping cart, donated items and also gave him a customized cake with his favorite Brazilian soccer player, Neymar, on it. After Cesilio got all of his most wanted items at Best buy, he made his way across the street, to North Lake Mall, where he picked up a few more of the things on his wish list. Cesilio and his family ended their day at one of his favorite restaurants; P.F. Chang’s where a customized meal was prepared for his entire family. Cesilio was able to have an amazing day focused on him experiencing his and every teenager’s ultimate wish!
