“ He now has a place where, when his illness requires it, he can spend his time comfortably. ”

Jacob, age 13, suffers from renal disease, and consequently has to spend a lot of time in his room.

He often passes the time watching television, listening to music and reading books. His favorite movie is Disney/Pixar’s “Cars.” When Jacob’s wish granters, Asif and Gale, asked him what the theme of his new bedroom should be, he simply stated “Cars!”

The wish granters ordered the new “Cars” bedroom furniture, bedding, and decorations that were delivered to Jacob’s home first. Then Asif and Gale arrived at Jacob’s home to help set up his new computer and television. Jacob is visually impaired, so as part of his new bedroom he received a computer with a large television that would act as the computer monitor. The family had painted Jacob’s walls blue and red, and the new Cars furniture and decorations looked like they all fit in. To finish the room, Jacob’s family added the hubcaps that Jacob had been collecting to complete the look from the movie. Jacob now has a place where, when his illness requires it, he can spend his time comfortably!
