A Place of His Own

Tyler amazed that his wish for a shopping spree is coming true

“ Instead of focusing on cancer, Tyler can now put all of his energy into whatever Xbox game he decides to play next in his new room. ”

Tyler Shops at Montana Stores for Items for His New "Man Cave"

Every teenage boy dreams of having their own hangout room, but 16-year-old Tyler’s dream quickly became a reality when Make-A-Wish® granted his wish for a “man cave.”

Tyler and his family were taken by limo on a shopping spree to buy all the “man cave” essentials from Target, Living Room, Vann’s and Best Buy. Upon arriving at Vann’s, Tyler found a special table set up just for him, filled with the items from his wish list. The new CEO of Vann’s stopped by the store just to meet Tyler. His shopping spree was a great success as he went home with electronics, games, a recliner, a fridge plus many other goodies.

While Tyler and his family were at the Montana Club for lunch, the Vann’s manager surprised Tyler by hooking up all of his new purchases at his house, in Stevensville, MT. All that was left to do when Tyler returned home was sit back, relax and enjoy his new “man cave.” The impact Tyler’s gift had on him and his family can easily be seen by how happy it has made him. Instead of focusing on his osteosarcoma, thanks to his gift, Tyler can put all of his energy into whatever Xbox game he decides to play next in his new room.
