Make-A-Wish granted in Newark for 4-year-old battling Burkitt’s Lymphoma

A 4-year-old from Wayne County diagnosed with Burkitt’s Lymphoma had his Make-A-Wish dream granted.

Calvin Stiner wanted to be a super hero.

Make-A-Wish granted it by providing a series of fun events to make that dream come true.

Make-A-Wish allowed Stiner to ride in an ambulance, fire truck, and police car. During the ride-along, first responders received a mock call- which allowed Stiner to put out a fire.

He met members of the Newark Fire Department, Wayne County Sheriff’s office, New York State Police, and countless other local first responders.

He became an honorary ambulance member at the end of the ceremony.

Make-A-Wish grants hundreds of thousands of wishes to children battling serious illness.
