How your Ultra Challenge will help
After treatment for retinoblastoma left eight-year-old Clark with a prosthetic eye, he would get very distressed during hospital appointments and the one thing that helped was his love of comic books. His wish to meet his comic author hero, Jamie Smart, exceeded his own vivid imagination when he got to learn how to draw his favourite characters, was chauffeured in a limo and had afternoon tea at Shangri-La The Shard, London.
Mum, Sally told us how Clark's wish had helped...
"Over the last year Clark has become more accepting of his eye and has faced his fears of it head on and is now at a point where he is taking his eye in and out himself. The wish has cemented everything we've always told him; that he is brave, determined, resilient and he should be proud of how hard he has worked on managing his eye."
By taking part in an Ultra Challenge for Make-A-Wish, you'll be raising vital funds to grant life-changing wishes for more children like Clark and creating lasting, positive memories for these children and their families at a time when they need it most.
