Seventeen-year-old local wish kid Dhruv has a passion for computers and gaming systems. Despite battling muscular dystrophy, he continues to love computer gaming and software. When Dhruv found out that Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic would be granting his one true wish, he wished to have a new iMac computer.

Dhruv will be attending George Mason University in the fall, where he hopes to major in computer science. Granting Dhruv’s wish helps to further his future dream of becoming a computer scientist and building robots. He is also excited to use his new computer to play video games and experiment with program editing!

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic serves children who reside in central and southern Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland and Northern Virginia. Founded in 1983, the organization has granted nearly 8,800 wishes in the Mid-Atlantic region since its inception. This year alone, 840 local children are expected to be diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. However, for every wish granted, at least two more local children are waiting. The community has the opportunity to make an impact today by helping Make-A-Wish to reach hundreds of kids whose wishes would go otherwise unanswered this year.
