Make-A-Wish Foundation Helps Ailing Teen Refurbish Classic Car

This organization is devoted to taking in requests to help children with life-threatening medical conditions between the age of 2 ½ and 18. Children do not need to have a terminal condition to be considered for the Make-A-Wish program. Their physicians must weigh in and make the determination that a child qualifies him or her for a wish through the foundation. There are no income requirements for the child’s family. On average, the process of granting a wish to a child costs about $7,500.

Being in the transportation services business, we were so glad to see that the charitable organization recently helped an ailing teenager fulfill his dreams of refurbishing a classic car.

Cameron Newton is a 16-year-old boy in Salt Lake City, Utah who was diagnosed with lymphoma. As the owner of a 1986 Chevy El Camino, Cameron was hoping to see the vehicle looking as good as new.

Fortunately, the Make-A-Wish-Foundation of Utah heard about Cameron and its volunteers made arrangements to fix up the car for the ailing teen. Although Cameron knew that the foundation was taking steps to refurbish the vehicle, he was surprised to see it unveiled recently because his parents told him they were taking him to see another vehicle that they were thinking of purchasing. The ruse worked, and Cameron was nearly rendered speechless at the sight of his spruced-up car.

The refurbished El Camino will be a source of comfort to the teen as he continues to undergo bouts of chemotherapy, which he may need to do through 2016. We are happy to hear that Cameron is enjoying his new vehicle and we hope that it will buoy his spirits as he gets his much-needed medical treatments.

For more information about the Make-A-Wish-Foundation or to refer a child or make a donation, please visit the organization’s website at wish.org. Any financial contributions that you make will be tax deductible because the foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
