Blue Lightning

Blue Lightning is the story of Joseph, an 11-year old Make-A-Wish® boy with Hodgkin's lymphoma who wishes for a basketball court in his backyard. Joseph is a huge NBA fan along with his brother Anthony. While following Joseph's story, an unexpected donor with ties to the NBA surprises the brothers with an experience of a life time. When the court is finished, they unveil it at a reveal party along with 100+ people in the community to share in Joseph's joy. This story gives us a front row seat to what it's like to plan a wish at the Make-A-Wish® office in Suffolk County, New York.

  • Despite the rain this past Saturday, over 500 people within the Harborfields Community gathered together for their 13th Annual Walk For A Wish event to help grant 12-year old Frank's wish to go to Atlantis in the Bahamas! Through their support over $19,000 was raised allowing us to grant wishes for two children. Our sincerest thanks to the students, families and teachers at Thomas J Lahey Elementary School and Washington Drive Primary School.
