WHAT: A pediatric brain tumor and cancer patient from Balch Springs, Texas will be surprised when his wish is revealed by Make-A-Wish North Texas at Medical City Children’s Hospital on Wednesday, May 9 at 12:30 p.m. Medical City Children’s Hospital employees will reveal the wish through a coordinated flash mob dance. Make-A-Wish North Texas will send Austin and his family to Hawaii to enjoy a vacation highlighted by a deep-sea fishing trip.
This wish reveal is extra special because Austin's mom is also a pediatric cardiology nurse at Medical City Children’s Hospital who has cared for countless wish families. Austin is an avid adventurer and is hopeful to catch his very own trophy fish!
In coordination with National Nurses and Hospital Week, May 6 through May 12, Medical City Children’s Hospital nurses and staff will participate in this wish reveal and flash mob. They frequently witness the impact wishes have on their patients, and this event provides a rare opportunity for them to take part in a wish reveal.
WHEN: Wednesday, May 9 at 12:30 p.m.
WHERE: Medical City Children’s Hospital, First Floor Atrium
7777 Forest Ln., Dallas, Texas 75230
