We were just contacted through email: My name is Ashley Amerman, and I am the Director of Program Services here at Make-A-Wish. I am hoping you can help me out. I am working on a rush wish for a boy who is 5 years old. He loves everything Star Wars! His original wish was to go to Walt Disney World during Star Wars weekend to experience all that he could. Unfortunately, he is unable to travel at this time due to his medical prognosis.

So instead, we are putting together a Star Wars themed party just for him! We are looking at having the party on Saturday, April 2nd in Frisco. He really wants to “Fight Darth Vader” and have his own Luke Skywalker costume. Having the 501st Legion at the party would make it unbelievable!

There will be a place to change as this will be at a hotel
When: April 2nd from 1-3 ( show up at 12)
where: The Westin Stonebriar Hotel
1549 Legacy Drive
Frisco, TX 75034
(972) 668-8000
Who: Everybody, especially Vader (A Luke or Obi-Wan or other Jedi would be great too)

This is cross-posted from 501st as we need all the people we can get.

I am very sorry to say that I just found out that the boy passed away late last night. He was able to see some 501st on a hospital visit 2 weeks ago and got his wish to defeat Vader. He was a really great kid.

That is so sad to hear...I'm really glad the 501st was able to see him and that he got as close to his wish as possible.
