Om on his bike

Om, 5
acute lymphoblastic leukemia
I wish to have a bicycle

Om is a sweet and charismatic 5-year-old boy who loves to play with his friends. He has a heart of gold and always has a smile on his face. He is also facing the challenges of living with a life-threatening medical condition.

When Om was referred to Make-A-Wish India, the volunteer team met with Om to find out his one true wish. Om is very talkative, so it wasn't too hard! Om did not hesitate to let the volunteers know that what he wished for more than anything was a battery-operated bike. Om told the volunteers that he loves riding bikes, especially with his big brother, and that he really wanted a bike of his very own.

When Om's wish granters presented him with his new bike, he was ecstatic! Om was jumping up and down with happiness and could not stop smiling. Om promised his mom that he is going to use his new bike to help her get vegetables from the market - and that he will even let her take a ride!
