Herbert Marcus Elementary student has a wish come true


Olssen Fuentes, third-grader at Herbert Marcus Elementary School, will soon be granted with his wish of going shopping. That’s what the ten-year old asked for as a celebration of being cancer free for almost a year now. Fuentes underwent through chemotherapies for a few months as part of his battle with leukemia.

The Make-A-Wish foundation surprised Fuentes at school on Feb. 15, along with his classmates, teachers and a family.

When Fuentes goes on his shopping spree in a few weeks, he knows the first thing he wants to get: an iPad.
