Tollsyn’s Wish – 2017
Beginning on Friday, March 17, The Wish Connection granted Tollsyn a wish weekend filled with a whirlwind of activities, gifts and experiences. Tollsyn is an amazing little 8 year old boy and he will immediately capture your heart with his love of life! Tollsyn has a genetic disorder that causes his bones to break easily and he has endured multiple surgeries. The Wish Connection was honored to grant Tollsyn’s Wish-FULL Weekend and it was truly AMAZING!
The WISH Connection team started “Tollsyn’s Wish-FULL Weekend” by having the Indiana Pacers’ mascot, Boomer, surprise him after school Friday, March 17.
Saturday, a limousine picked up Tollsyn and his family to take them to a private movie party at a local theater, with about 75 of his closest friends, family and classmates. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to Tollsyn, the WISH Connection team partnered with the Decatur Township Fire Department to transform his bedroom into a Nerf-themed space, complete with a new flat screen TV and gaming system.
The local police department surprised Tollsyn with his own police uniform, which is fitting because he hopes to become an officer when he grows up. Tollsyn was taken “down-town” to the police station in a police car where he was made “honorary police chief for the day.”
On Sunday The Wish Connection Team had Tollsyn picked up by a limousine and whisked away him to an hour-long shopping spree at Toys R Us, which filled the back of a pickup truck! He then went to the Indianapolis Zoo to participate in a “special Dolphin Art Experience.”
Both Tollsyn and his family enjoyed the weekend and his experiences, lots of tears and smiles were seen all around. By late Sunday afternoon Tollsyn was so tired he could hardly keep his eyes open for pictures but he was one happy little boy.
