Tron's Wish

Tron and his boat

“ ...This is exactly what I wanted, thank you! ”

- Tron

Tron is a 10-year-old boy from Spartanburg who has acute myeloid leukemia. He is currently going through treatment and has been in and out of the hospital due to different complications.

Tron’s favorites things include fishing, boating and Clemson. He wanted his wish to encompass all three so he wished to have a Clemson themed jon boat! 

Make-A-Wish® volunteers helped find the perfect four person jon boat and began to transform it into Tron’s dream boat. Clemson colors, tiger paws and Tron’s name were carefully painted on the boat. Many exciting accessories including fishing gear with two rods, a tackle box, a cooler, picnic supplies, life jackets and fire extinguishers were loaded on the boat.

On Monday, March 11, 2013 the boat was revealed to Tron at his local Applebee’s. Tron walked outside and immediately saw his new Clemson Boat. He smiled and excitedly said, “this is exactly what I wanted, thank you!” Tron can’t wait to go fishing with his family in his very own boat!

*** Make-A-Wish South Carolina would like to thank Applebee's® for a great Wish Party! ***
