A boy’s wish: Granted

Volunteers stock leukemia survivor's room with electronics and more.

Krishnal Naidu’s bedroom has been transformed for his wish, courtesy of Make-A-Wish BC and IKEA.

After battling leukemia for the past four years, Naidu, 14, wanted to have a cool hang-out spot for his friends – a place where they could gather to play video games and watch hockey on his new big screen TV.

On Sept. 8, with the help of IKEA volunteers, his room got new paint, new flooring, new furniture including a chair and a couch to accommodate his friends, new bed, bedding, accessories, a big screen Sony TV and new gaming systems, including the PS3 and a Wii.

The video games were provided by Electronic Arts.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants wishes to kids three to 17 years old who have a life-threatening medical condition to provide hope, strength and joy to a family at a time when they need it most.

Currently, Naidu’s leukemia is in remission.
