Javier Amos, 9, lives in Watertown, South Dakota. He has bravely battled lukemia and and is now in remission. Even though he's on the road to recovery, the Make-a-Wish Foundation approached his family and offered to grant any wish he wanted. He could meet his favorite athlete, or go to Disney World. But instead, he asked for a pizza party for all his school friends.
Last month, the Make-a-Wish people showed up at his school. And they didn't just bring pizza. They threw everyone a huge pizza party with included zoo animals, bounce houses and laser tag. Javier got to ride to school in a police car, and when he showed up, everyone was waiting for him, chanting his name. The head of the Make-a-Wish Foundation said he'd never seen anything quite like it, and yes, Javier is pretty popular at school these days.
