Celebrating 25,000 Wishes…and Counting
This month, we are celebrating all wishes, including one very special milestone – the granting of our 25,000th wish to Jayden from Edmonton, Alberta.
Growing up as an avid athlete, 18-year-old Jayden had a love for team sports – particularly basketball. In 2014, Jayden was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a cancer of the muscle tissue. Jayden’s wish was to design his own pair of sneakers, a wish made even more unique with his idea of “melting” his favourite sneakers into one ultimate pair. After days of being in a hospital bed, Jayden rose to walk the corridors in his new sneakers. Having bravely fought his illness with determination and hope for over two years, Jayden passed away shortly after receiving his wish.
Inspired by the fire in Jayden’s fight, the King Jay line of clothing was created. It honours Jayden’s legacy and helps kids like him fight with the most powerful fuel of all – hope. Each piece is emblazoned with a graphic shoelace that unites us in the belief that, for kids battling life-threatening illnesses, wishes really do matter. They create priceless magical memories that live forever in the hearts of wish children and their families.
