Make-A-Wish: Jacob, 10, gets dream trip to Legoland Florida on World Wish Day

The associates at Topgolf Las Vegas helped Make-A-Wish of Southern Nevada host a very special wish reveal. Jacob, a classic 10-year-old who loves to play video games and spend time with his siblings, thought he and his family were simply attending a party at Topgolf.

He was then surprised with the news that his wish of traveling to Legoland Florida with his family is coming true!

A few months ago, Jacob was diagnosed with a rare, inoperable brain tumor in a very delicate part of his brain called DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma). After many intense treatments, the family tirelessly searches for clinical trials that will accept his condition.

Jacob deserved a break from his routine and frequent doctors’ visits — Make-A-Wish and Topgolf together gave him a chance to be a young boy again and experience the hope, strength, and joy a wish provides.

Saturday was Make-A-Wish’s annual World Wish Day to honor and recognize everyone involved in making wishes possible.
