WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Trey Stephens, a 7-year-old boy from New Hanover County, suffers from acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Through Make-A-Wish North Carolina, Trey will have his wish granted to go to WrestleMania 29 with his family.
The wish-party was held at Hoggard High School, where the Vikings wrestling team named Trey an honorary member of the team for the day.
Make-A-Wish North Carolina grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. Founded in 1986, the chapter serves all medically eligible children who reside in the 49 counties east of the Orange / Alamance county line.
The chapter operates solely through generous donations of individuals, corporations and foundations. With the help of more than 200 volunteers, including our Board of Directors, Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina has granted more than 2,600 wishes since its inception.
