Two years ago, March 18-20, 2016, my wish to be part of the #nhljets came true 👏 I’m going to tweet some memories from the weekend over the next few days if that’s ok 👍 #GoJetsGo #makeawish 💙✈️
My wish happened because I had brain surgery in Sept 2015. I have hydrocephalus, fluid in my spinal chord and a small mass on my brain stem 🤯😐 I’ll have hydrocephalus all my life and I hope the mass doesn’t grow 🙏 #makeawish
My aunt nominated me for a wish after my surgery and in Jan 2016, I met with #makeawish to give them my top 3 wishes. Meeting #NHLJets and skating with them was number 1 of course 😁 I dressed up for the meeting 👨‍💼
On March 16 my family and me were going to the Flames / #NHLJets game. We went for dinner first at my fave restaurant and #makeawish surprised me there that my wish was being granted. My parents knew all along lol. We would be going to Winnipeg in two days 😳😄
So two years ago, on March 18 2016, was the start of the best weekend ever. @MickEMoose_00 met us at the airport and had jerseys for me and my brothers. I wanted them to be a part of my wish too 👦👦👦 #NHLJets #makeawish #mickemoose
After the airport, we went to our hotel. Our room was on the same floor as the Away teams (CHI on Fri, ANA on Sat) 😊 We went to the #nhljets / Blackhawks game Friday night and watched from a press box. So cool. #makeawish
Chevy and JC Lipon came to say hi 👋 and my mom was excited that her question to Lowry was in the In Flight magazine 😂 #nhljets #makeawish
And that was just Day 1 of my #nhljets #makeawish weekend. I’ll tell you about Day 2 tomorrow if you want to check it out. It’s awesome I promise 😊✈️💙 #gojetsgo
Ok on to Day 2 of my #nhljets wish 😀May 19 2016 - We went to the arena in the morning and got a tour before going to 'the war room' to meet Chevy. That's when I signed my contract to be a Jets player 🤗
Cool, right? #nhljets #makeawish #gojetsgo Check out how me and Chevy are both left handed. Maybe that means I'll be the Jets GM one day too 🤞
After that, I got to do a press conference and meet my new coaches 😄The best part was coming though #nhljets #makeawish
The #nhljets dressing room was SO awesome. I got my own stall and beside Lowry. A bunch of players came to say hi. #makeawish
And then I got to meet @ALowsyPlayer17 for the first time 🙌 He had given me a signed stick before my brain surgery but I had not met him before my wish #nhljets #makeawish
After Coach Maurice talked, I got to take part in the #nhljets practice. Coolest thing ever. I scored on Pavelec. He prob let me haha. Buff checked me into the boards and I got to pass the pucks to everyone during a drill #makeawish
My brothers got to come on the ice too. It was super fun to have them out there #nhljets #makeawish
Sorry for all the pics lol. Hope you don't mind me sharing. After the practice, we hung out at the arena for the afternoon, had pizza and snacks and did interviews for my wish video. #nhljets #makeawish
And that's Day 2. Only one more day to go. Maybe not so many pics tomorrow 😜Thanks again for reading my #nhljets #makeawish wish thread. #GoJetsGo
