Chase: I wish to have a hairless cat

Chase: I wish to have a hairless cat

“ Thank you for giving Chase something to smile about ”


- Chase's mom

Entering the house as he had many times before, Chase rounded the corner never expecting what awaited him.

Peaking her head out of the carrier, Thor the hairless cat was exactly what Chase had wished for; with two different colored eyes, a jetpack and even a gold sweater.

“He came up to the cat carrier and asked me, ‘Who’s this?’ I told him it was Thor. A giant smile came over his face. He just beamed,” said Ben Schanck, Make-A-Wish® Wyoming Board Member.

“Chase’s treatment is for six months and virtually non-stop. He’s always been a trooper; never complained or asked why, but there were some lonely, dark times there. The thought of the cat just brought a smile to his face. A lot of times it was the only thing that brought a smile to his face,” shared Chase’s father, Mike.

 Smiling as he held the cat on his lap, Chase’s mantra throughout treatment, “keep calm and go hairless,” had never been more true.

  • Alexis-Hope from Cheyenne, Wyoming had her wish to go to Disney World granted in 2016. She has a very special message for the volunteers involved in the process! During National Volunteer Week, we are celebrating the individuals that make wishes happen. Without the help of our volunteers, we wouldn't be able to grant wishes to all of the eligible children around the state.
