“ This is the happiest day ever! ”


- Christian, wish child

Christian wished to have his very own Rolex watch.

   Christian is 16 years old from Setauket and has Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  His favorite things are football, Spanish food…and collecting watches.  Christian had a truly unique wish.  He wished for something that he couldn’t get on his own; something that he would always remember.  He wished to have his very own Rolex watch. 

            In August 2014 on a sunny Saturday, Christian and Make-A-Wish Suffolk County’s Director of Program Services, Johan, went to the Walt Whitman Mall in Huntington to pick up his new watch.  Christian smiled from ear to ear as he tried on his Rolex for the first time!  “This is the happiest day ever!” Christian said of his wish.

Christian’s wish was granted in honor and memory of our dear friend, Duncan K. Wang, who was an avid watch collector himself.  Duncan served on the Board of Directors and as President & CEO of Make-A-Wish® Suffolk County.  In 2003, he founded Make-A-Wish® Singapore.  Since inception, Make-A-Wish® Singapore has granted over 1,000 wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.    

            Duncan would have loved and taken great interest in Christian’s wish.  His leadership and generosity has had a lasting impact on the Foundation. He is truly missed, but his spirit lives on in every wish we grant.

Christian's wish was granted in honor and memory of our friend Duncan K. Wang.
