7-Year-Old Cancer Patient Makes a Mind-Blowing Wish

7-Year-Old Cancer Patient Makes a Mind-Blowing Wish

When 7-year-old Maxwell Hinton finished his treatments for neuro-blastoma (a common form of cancer in young people), the Make-a-Wish Foundation was able to grant him the extraordinary wish he'd made during his treatment: to blow up a building.

Maxwell, who lives in Fresno, CA, and is a fan of the popular television series Mythbusters, was able to trigger the scheduled demolition of an old granary in Huron, Ohio. 30,000-40,000 people came out to watch him make a splash. But the best news of all (we think) is that Maxwell is in remission.

I have a friend in IN who has two of her sons who are in remission, We got to see both of their Make a Wishes granted and have donated to that great organization. My friend was able to keep us all posted on I hope all families of children with cancer will check this site out. It really gave her an outlet and a support group too. Julia in Yuma
