Make-a-Wish & Team U.S.A. Make A Little Gymnast’s Dreams Come True
Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Elijah Harper was able to train with his heroes. The 9-year-old had the chance to hang out with the Team U.S.A. men’s gymnasts at the US Olympic Training Center.
The team even signed a GK shirt for him!
For the past year, Elijah has been battling medulloblastoma, a cancerous brain tumor. Following surgery to remove the tumor, Elijah underwent treatment at Akron Children’s Hospital, where he had his final chemotherapy treatment in October.
Elijah lost roughly 30 pounds during his treatments, but thankfully his mom’s spaghetti and chili have been helping him recover. His dream is be able to do a double backflip and one day make the Olympic team.
