If you go to Make A Wish’s site and looked up the most popular wishes, they’ll tell you that they come in four categories: I wish to go, I wish to be, I wish to meet, I wish to have. Jayvon Felton’s wish fell into the second category, ‘I wish to be the Detroit Police Chief’, and although it wasn’t organised by Make A Wish, it certainly happened.
Jayvon is 9 years old and has acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. For the next few years he’ll be undergoing chemotherapy, meaning he’ll be kept home to avoid aggravating his weakened immune system. With this in mind, the Children’s Hospital of Michigan organised it with Detroit Police that he be worn in and act as Police Chief for a day, something his mum says he’s always wanted to be so he can ‘protect and help people’.
While he didn’t do anything official, other than look cute and jokingly give everyone the day off, it’s just one of those stories I love to read and write about. Good feels, yo.
What feel good stories have you read this week? Share and the happiness!
