RICOCHET GRANTS WISH FOR 15 YEAR OLD MAKE-A-WISH KID WITH STAGE 4 BRAIN TUMOR WHO FLEW CROSS COUNTRY JUST TO SURF WITH HER!
Caleb has stage four brain cancer that spread to his spine causing him to use a wheelchair. When Make-A-Wish asked what he wished for, he said “I saw this cool dog on ESPN that surfs with kids who are disabled or have special needs, I wish that one day I could surf with her.” His wish was granted on Wednesday, February 12th.
With Ricochet positioned behind him, she gave him the balance he needed as they were pitched on a number of waves. Caleb’s huge, infectious smile said it all as he flew through the waves feeling a sense of freedom, “It was super fun. I felt almost normal… finally. It felt really good to be free, not worrying about anything and having someone to be my balance”, Caleb said when asked about the experience.
Caleb’s mother Cathy was brought to tears and said “I’m just so happy to see my son happy. Today is a great day for our family.” Everyone on the beach felt the magic of this wish and the electrifying positive energy of Caleb. He is an inspiration.
Caleb’s goal is to beat this cancer and tell everyone how he beat it.
Ricochet asks to please share this inspirational video of his memorable surfing wish.
