When undergoing treatment and doctor's visits, Dean really enjoys being able to escape into a video game. So when he chose his wish, he did something no other kid had yet done in S.C. - he chose to give to make other kids happy.
Dean chose to make a donation to Child's Play, a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in our network of over 100 hospitals worldwide. He wanted more kids to be able to escape into a world of fun and games just like he has.
Child's Play flew a representative out from their Seattle office to thank Dean and accept the donation. It is because of Dean's wish, Child's Play now has a relationship with Palmetto Richland's Children Hospital. Dean has made an impact for years to come.
Dean's wish is the milestone first "Give" wish for Make-A-Wish South Carolina.
