Make-A-Wish of Northern and Central Florida granted the wish of 18-year-old Hunter Hill.

Make-A-Wish of Northern and Central Florida granted the wish of 18-year-old Hunter Hill. After a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis, Hill started playing video games to keep in contact with his friends through Xbox during hospital stays.  His wish was for a laptop to keep the games going — and to use for homework, of course. 

Former “Wish Child” Nicole McDowell helped organize a limo ride for him to pick up a laptop and Xbox One at Best Buy, followed by a shopping spree at GameStop. “I was once a wish kid, so I understood the desire to be able to stay in contact with his friends…” McDowell said.
